Suparman searches on his homemade raft for anything of value among the putrefying rubbish on the Ciliwung river. His entrepreneurial spirit, along with others like him, has helped the Jakarta administration to clean the rivers, which many view as a convenient place to dump their trash. Suparman was able to collect several baskets full of recyclable material on Friday in the Gunung Sahari area of North Jakarta. (JP/P.J. Leo)
