Sarbagita Sanur’s behemoth garbage dump is a huge mountain of discarded and decaying refuse where the Bali’s poorest spend their day's competing with vermin, trying scratch a meager living from what they salvage.

The idea of something as simple as a new pair of quality shoes is a distant dream for people who live in simple hovels atop piles of garbage.
