Waste Land is a 2010 British-Brazilian documentary film directed by Lucy Walker. The film chronicles artist Vik Muniz, who travels to the world’s largest landfill, Jardim Gramacho outside Rio de Janeiro. There he collaborates with a lively group of catadores (litter pickers) of recyclable materials, who find a way to the most prestigious auction house in London via the surprising transformation of refuse into contemporary art.

About the venue: As part of its 25 year waste management contract with Southwark COuncil, Veolia has constructed an Integrated Waste Management Facility off Old Kent Road. The facility includes a Materials Recovery Facility and a Mechanical Biological Treatment Facility, a public Reuse and Recycling Centre and an Education and Visitor Centre.
