Smokey Mountain, the people of Stung Meanchey.
Known to the locals as Smokey Mountain, Stung Meanchey is the municipal dump in the Cambodian capital Phnom Penh. The Dump is a dangerous place, full of toxic waste sink holes and reckless truck drivers. It's in this place about 800 people make their home. They scavenge through the city's rubbish for anything of recyclable value to sell on earning about 30 pence a day.
I visited the dump in March of 2009.
