Clothing, deemed in too bad condition to be sold, discarded among a huge mound of discarded second-hand clothing at a rubbish dump in the Old Fadama area of Accra. Some of the items have labels from major United Kingdom retailers. This is where much of the second-hand clothing imported from Europe and the USA, but of too poor quality to be sold in the Kantamanto second-hand clothing market, ends up being dumped. While cattle graze among the detritus, people also scavenge for any reuseable items of clothing.
