We talk about trash. "Why do you work in Urquiza," I ask Gabi. "The people here are a bit more social than in the richer areas. And here the police don’t bother you. In the other parts on the Tren Blanco line they do, they ask for money, make trouble. You have to organise blockades in order to change it."
Gabi is the delegada, small and quiet. She organises the sale of the carton, every Saturday morning. A big lorry comes to Suárez to pick up the carton.
"I am worried about the yearly price fall," she says. "It’s normal that the price goes down in the two months before the holidays, but this year the fall started earlier and the prices are lower than ever. I have to find carton to survive, but I collect less an less." "How much is the price of old paper at this moment," I ask. "18 centavos a kilo, but I am afraid it will be 5 centavos in a month and nobody can tell us if the price will go up again after holidays. And the situation of the country will not improve," she says convinced.
