Cairo, EGYPT

A Zabbaleen man walks along a street in the Mokattam neighbourhood of Cairo. The Zabbaleen are a minority Coptic religious community who have served as Cairo's informal rubbish collectors for the past 70 to 80 years. They recycle 80% of the waste they collect, but the community is characterised by bad health and high rates of disease. Zabbaleen means 'garbage people' in Egyptian Arabic, and they number more than 17,000 who live in dusty squatter settlements.
