COME rain or shine, Kassim bin Haji Lamat rummages through the garbage collection point daily in search of tin cans and scrap metal to be sold for recycling.
Currently residing at the Kampong Kasat dumping area, the former army officer relies on collecting recycled material to supplement his earnings, on top of receiving assistance from villagers.
