"Inside Villa 21 and 24: a grassroots garbage collection programme"
Jeannette Neumann, diario The Buenos Aires Herald, 4 de marzo de 2007

 "The project has brought organized trash collection to the shantytown for the first time"

  






 


"Villa miserias, or shantytowns, are not usually considered beacons of cleanliness. Villa 21 and 24 are exceptions thanks to the success of a programme called Guardianes del Riachuelo (Guardians of the riachuelo River), supported by Fundación Ciudad. [...]"

 " [...] At the end of 2003 and the beginning of 2004, the foundation held a series of public forums for people living in the Matanza-Riachuelo river basin [...]. More then 700 people attended  [...]" 
"[...] Through the forums, the agenda was set by the community. Talking to the people in Villa 21 and 24, they said 'we have 10,000 problems, but the number one problem is garbage', That is the most important thing for them, and we as an organization respect that. [...]"

"[...] In contrast to other Buenos Aires shantytowns, the residents of Villa 21 and 24 own the land they live on [...] and many of the residents are tax paying citizens [...]"

" [...] The success of the project attracted the attention of Muriel Hussin, wife of the Australian ambassador to Argentina. 

Hussin arranged for two Australian artists to come to Argentina, Janno McLaughlin and Peter Daverington [...] in order to  lend an artistic hand in the cleaning up and beautifying of the shantytown [...]"
