Waste removal and recycling are topics that are widely discussed and imperatively growing at the moment. The Reel was a project that David Elia Studio designed to highlight the research that studies recyclables and how it impacts society, especially in Brazil.

This project involves gathering waste statistics and the study of lithology. Not many Brazilian Municipalities have official waste recycling or management programs. The recovery of recyclable material is largely left to waste pickers, who earn a living by collecting recyclables and selling them to private recycling companies. One can see that the infrastructure of Brazil is not always able to handle the large amounts of waste, but in an interesting and ironic way, individuals will personally gather these recyclables whilst earning income and assisting this issue.
