What is this man doing...?

As we drive through the streets of Johannesburg daily, at some point motorists usually have to take evasive action of some sort, as a result of people wheeling trolleys around with huge bags of stuff mounted on them - something along these lines...:

Road hazard notwithstanding, clearly this poor guy is in need of something and is trying to better his lot somehow.

Essentially, he is rifling through trash in search of something - presumably something that can be used I would think?
Can anyone shed some light on this phenomenon?
Is it all about recyclable materials, which can somehow be swapped for cash?
