Impressions from a scrap recycling yard and steel foundry in Hooghly near Calcutta (Kolkata), India.
Fancy a nice cutlet, or an oven baked suckling pig made from these guys? These grow up on a waste dumpsite in Kolkata (Calcutta), inmidst human feces, household waste, batteries, medical and infectious waste, and the leachate they are sitting in contains Escherichia coli in the millions per mililitre.
Yesterday I had the chance to visit several industrial sites in Hooghly north of Calcutta. This photo I took in a scrap metal processing plant.
