    Sobrevivir en Nueva York con lo que otros desechan

    Comparte este artículo

    No forman parte de la típica estampa neoyorquina, pero no es difícil cruzarse por las calles de la ciudad con personas empujando carros llenos de enormes bolsas con botellas y latas vacías. Las consiguen sobre todo de los cubos de basura y los que emplean muchas horas recolectando estos recipientes, que se pagan a unos cinco céntimos la unidad, pueden llegar a sacar hasta 100 dólares al día. “Hace años era una labor relacionada con los ‘sin techo’ pero la mayoría de los que trabaja ahora en esto sí tiene una vivienda, y por eso trabajan duro, para poder pagar la renta”, explica Ana María Martínez de Luco, una enérgica religiosa de origen vasco que desde hace cinco años dedica su paciencia a ayudar a quienes han encontrado en Nueva York una forma de sobrevivir con los residuos ajenos.

    Cuando la organización Sure We Can abre sus puertas cada mañana, a las 8.00, en el barrio de Bushwick, en Brooklyn, varios de estos llamativos carros ya guardan cola. “Algunos, como un ciudadano chino al que nosotros llamamos ‘Hello, hello’, porque así nos saludaba él siempre, y su mujer, son de los que pueden sacar cada día unos 100 dólares. Pero eso es con muchas, muchísimas horas de trabajo. Toda una tarde, casi toda una noche y luego preparar todas las cajas por la mañana, quizás sin dormir”, comenta Ana entre el constante tintineo de latas.

    Sure We Can reparte cada día reparte unos 2.000 dólares. La ventaja de reciclar a través de esta organización es que no hay un límite de 12 dólares diarios como ocurre en los supermercados, ni tienen que esperar varias horas, como a veces les ocurre, a que les dejen pasar a alguno de esos comercios ni pierden horas en la calle, llueva, nieve o haga sol, aguardando a las camionetas para reciclaje. Esta organización sirve de intermediaria: Ana y su equipo se ocupan de gestionar la recogida de las latas y botellas y reciben el dinero del reciclaje de las propias compañías de bebidas, con lo que pueden seguir operando.

    “Muchos trabajan en pareja y sobre todo son personas de más de 50 ó 60 años, que no saben inglés y les es difícil tener acceso a otro tipo de trabajo. Los grupos principales son el asiático, principalmente chinos, y el latino”, explica la religiosa, que pertenece a una congregación internacional creada en Vic (Barcelona) familiarmente conocida como “las vedrunas”, por estar fundada por Joaquina de Vedruna. Llegó a Estados Unidos hace siete años, tras pasar más de dos décadas como misionera en Asia. Dejó su aldea, Urrunaga, en Legutiano (Álava) a los 25 años y puso rumbo a Filipinas. “Volví a mi casa materna para acompañar a mi madre en sus últimos meses de vida y en 2004 vine para EEUU”, explica.

    El ambiente familiar es otra de las señas de identidad de esta organización. ”Solamente contar latas sería aburrido”, dice entre risas Ana. “Les tratamos con respeto y les ves que a veces vienen a descansar, a charlar, a desahogarse. A veces también a compartir una alegría si han ganado 50 dólares en la loto. Se encuentran, creo, un poco como en casa. Como cuando uno va a casa, que no va a nada en concreto, pero comparte lo que le pasa”, señala. El respeto del que habla se resumen en el nombre elegido: “Sure We Can porque sí, nosotros podemos y porque sí, nosotros lateamos [can es "lata", en inglés] y lo hacemos con orgullo”.

    Ana cuenta con un equipo de trabajadores entre los que se encuentra María, una mujer de 73 años y envidiable forma física que dedica el tiempo que no pasa cuidando de su marido a recoger estos recipientes. “Yo ya tengo mi truco, y es que hay varias personas que me preparan bolsitas con botellas y latas y eso me sirve de ayuda”, cuenta.
