ABSTRACT

The study deals with the scrap dealers in the Tema-Ashaiman Metropolis (TAM). The purpose is to provide an analyses of the everyday life of scrap metal dealers in the metropolis. This was done by establishing the socio-demographic background of the scrap dealers and identifying the driving factors that lead them into this occupation. It traced the activities and the stages involved - from collection up to the delivery points. It also established the gains and risks involved in this trade. Further, it explored the future aspirations of the scrap dealers as well as their interaction with the general public and law enforcement agencies. The study was carried out using mainly qualitative research design and employing semi-structured interview guides, in-depth interviews, focus group discussions, participant and direct observations. A total of 34 respondents from the TAM took part in the study. The study revealed that scrap dealing has become a major job outlet for some unskilled young men in the TAM, mostly migrants from the Northern Region of Ghana who engage in it for livelihood. Additionally, the activities of scrap dealers have proven to be economically viable. Their work, they assert, provide raw materials for the steel manufacturing industries thus playing an important role in the nation’s development. They argued that the lack of organization, regulations, coupled with the porous nature and easy entry points into scrap dealing make it easy for some persons to infiltrate their ranks and caused a disaffection from the general public and the law enforcement agencies. Further, scrap dealers bemoan government’s lack of recognition of their role. They also demand the swift and immediate review of the ban on exportation of ferrous metals if their industry is to survive. It recommends that first, scrap dealers come together to pursue their common interest. Second, that government begin to recognize the efforts made by many in the informal sector especially scrap dealers and design policies that will enable them gain trust and credibility. Keywords: Scarp Dealers, Survival, Informal Sector, Livelihood.
