A garbage collector takes a nap on his tricycle, as he waits for people to sell abandoned items to him, in downtown Beijing May 26, 2014. On the outskirts of Beijing lies Dongxiaokou village, a major centre for recycling old electronic goods, or e-waste. Discarded electrical and electronic products, from abandoned air-conditioners to refrigerators, are collected and recycled mostly by migrant workers who either repair them or sell them on as scrap. Those in the business in Dongxiaokou grapple with poor infrastructure and sanitation facilities, in addition to dangers associated with handling e-waste. The village is now facing demolition to make way for an ambitious urbanisation plan, and residents are worried about losing their homes and work. Environmental issues will be under the spotlight on June 5, which marks World Environment Day. Picture taken May 26, 2014. REUTERS/Kim Kyung-Hoon (CHINA - Tags: ENVIRONMENT SOCIETY BUSINESS)
