At a garbage dump on the outskirts of Leon, , trucks come every hour to unload trash. As they do, thirty to forty people, many of whom live at the dump, go through the garbage to see if they can find something to eat, to sell, or to use for themselves. The dump typically has open fires, bloated dead cattle, and feral dogs wandering around.
