HEFEI: Workers sort through various plastic bottles collected at a recycling collection center in Hefei, east China's Anhui province on February 23, 2012. With a population of more than one billion people, China creates massive volumes of waste, but its recycling industry utilises not only its own rubbish but is the world's biggest importer of waste, taking in plastics from the United States, for example, before transforming them into new products to be shipped back to Western countries. -AFP
