Season 6, Episode 2 Garbage Dreams
First Aired: June 9, 2013
"Garbage Dreams" presents a fascinating slice of life from Cairo: the Zaballeen, a Coptic Christian community that collects trash and recycles 80 percent of it. The doc focuses on two young men, one who's in the trade and another who can't keep a job, and a social worker who's attempting to help her people modernize in the face of tough times. For the first time, the government has contracted for waste disposal---but with foreign companies that recycle far less than the Zaballeen.
