This article presents the information, the data, and the imperative of the “garbage” factor and how it can become a business that allows extremely poor populations to create a basis for daily sustenance; This is how an apprehension must be reached about what is done with these unwanted materials and how it can communicate to us about how we consume and our well-being, as well as being a maintenance tool, because as countries they thrive, their trash generation increases. Rapid urbanization and population growth add to the problem, as collection becomes increasingly complex and waste treatment sites are more difficult to locate and waste accumulation intensifies in countries less able to deal with it; We are going to build a contrast as is the case of Colombia and developed countries; find the warnings of the consequences of a huge imbalance, an inequality at both the national and international levels. This is where we realize that nothing less is at stake than our value system, our concept of democracy and, finally, also our economy.
