Trash hill casts shadow on village

Farmers search for plastic bottles and other recyclable items this month on a 28-meter-high hill of garbage in Yuanfuzhuang, in Central China's Henan province. Villagers earn about 1,500 yuan ($240) a month selling the reclaimed materials, which is their only source of income. There is little farmland to support families because the local government claimed much of it to enlarge the landfill. Photos by Xiang Mingchao / China Daily
