Zabaleen neighborhood in Cairo, Egypt. The Zabaleen districts (garbage collectors in Arabic) are home to the huge recycling industry run by the garbage collectors and their families. They recycle up to 87% of the trash they collect. The organic garbage is used to raise pigs and goats in their neighborhood. Here goats and sheep are eating a supplement of grain in a trough in the street.
