Tóm tắt: Driven totally by economic incentive, informal recycling sectors in developing countries produce secondary resources and highly contribute to reducing consumption of natural resources and disposal of municipal solid waste. Formal sectors or municipalities should have secured more budget to manage more collected solid waste, without recyclables recovered by informal sectors. One of the important actors in informal recycling sector is the primary collector of recyclables, who collects recyclables from sources such as households, restaurants, hotels, streets, dumpsites, etc. Junk buyer as a primary collector plays a significant role in recovering recyclables in urban areas in Vietnam. Junk buyer requires daily working capital to purchase recyclables at the sources and can earn more income with less working time1) and better sanitary condition than waste picker, who has the little capital for collecting recyclables. Mitchell (2008) and DiGregorio (1994) revealed that a certain area in the rural province, Xuan Truong District in Nam Dinh province, was historically a source of human resources to send continuously junk buyers as temporary migrants to Ha Noi.1),2) This study aimed to identify the contribution of supporters for migrating junk buyers to Ho Chi Minh City and Da Nang in addition to Ha Noi through interview survey to approximately 900 junk buyers in the three cities.
