Mexican dump raises stink over jobs

Efforts to go green leave capital with a dirty dilemma as jobless complain over rubbish tip's closure.

    Rubbish is piling up in the streets of Mexico City after the Bordo Poniente refuse dump, the country's largest, was shut down for environmental reasons.

    The government says the decision will significantly help reduce the capital's greenhouse gas emissions, but people who depend on the dump for work now face an uncertain future.

    Al Jazeera's Rachel Levin reports from Mexico City.
