There was a chap called Kevin McCloud who visited a place where e-waste was recycled - looked a lot like this. Basically it's a huge shanty town built up around the recycling industry. Good on them I say, yes it's not a western income, but compared to some of the options they have it's pretty good work, and considering the bad press that China gets for environmental waste we should look at these images as setting an example to the rest of the planet for recycling our rubbish.
