NEW DELHI — Landfills wanted. “Ragpickers” who make a living selling scrap metal, glass and other recyclables, sort trash on the street, while stray cattle and half-wild dogs wade through it to root out kitchen scraps. This massive city alone generates nearly 10,000 tons of garbage — equal to the US average weight of about 5,000 cars — on a daily basis. That's likely to double over the next decade.
