Episode Summary

EDIT
Cairo
AIRED:
Cairo is one of the biggest cities on the planet, and getting bigger by the day. In 50 years, the population has grown fivefold to 18 million. Each day the city accumulates about 25,000 tons of trash. In a land of narrow streets and donkey-drawn carts, how is it all picked up? And where does it all go? Take a junk-filled journey through time as we detail Cairo’s 2,000-year battle with trash. It’s a tale marked by slave labor, Black Death, haunted toilets and a modern-day city built from the trash of Africa’s modern metropolis.moreless
