MALDOVAN BONELLI, Johanna. Work, associativism and collective action: the case of the recovery and classification of solid waste cooperatives. Trab. soc. [online]. 2012, n.19, pp. 0-0. ISSN 1514-6871.
This article analyzes the consolidation process of the recovery and classification of solid waste cooperatives as a distinctive actor in the recycling production chain in Buenos Aires City. I analize how the deployment of a collective strategy based on associative organizations has been a way to improve working conditions and to integrate themselves into the urban hygiene public system. This process is presented in three different moments established from the conformation of cooperative organizations and their interaction with the public policies related to the activity.
