He has explored this topic in various parts of the world to expand his concept that instability can force communities to work at open dumpsites. His topics include families moving to dumps for work because of extreme poverty, war, indigenous tribe migration, corruption, governmental neglect, lack of funding, earthquakes, hurricanes and other natural disasters.
