Standing on a pile of garbage on the embankment of the river, children burn garbage so metal in it gets exposed and later collect metal objects with a piece of magnet. Garbage that cannot be recycled any longer, simply gets dumped in already severely polluted river Buriganga. It is not uncommon to see children as young as 7 years old combing garbage dumps.
