Chemical waste dump. Asian workers unload chemical waste from a trailer into a deep gully. Any toxic chemicals which are present in the sludge will be able to leach out into a stream (not seen here) that flows through the gully. Photographed at Nandesari in Gujarat, India. In this major industrial area, wastes are often disposed of by dumping them in any convenient open space or watercourse.
