The City of Garbage (20 pics)

Posted in Pictures   1 Sep 2010   / 10982 views

Manshiet Nasser is a strange community in Cairo, Egypt. People call this place The City of Garbage because tons of trash come here from all over the capital of Egypt. The most unusual thing about this place is that people actually live here. Another strange thing about Manshiet Nasser is that local residents, the Zabbaleen, including women and kids dig through the garbage looking for something to resell. About 80 per cent of this trash is recycled and resold later on.

Cairo is not the only city on earth where such a model of Manshiet Nasser exists. It is already copied by communities in Los Angeles, Bombay and Manila.

Actually, this town is just a squat community, similar to Brazilian favela. Nobody dumps garbage there, except for their inhabitants, they just bring the garbage from landfills to sort them.
