Episode summary:

Kevin's immersive journey through Dharavi continues as he explores the extraordinary recycling industry. Here, 80 per cent of the city's plastic waste is recycled. Everything from plastic drinking straws to the coating on electric cables gets sorted, stripped down, cleaned and pelleted ready to be re-formed into a new product. Kevin works alongside the dustmen of Mumbai and follows the rag pickers who eke out a tiny living by collecting plastic from the city's dumps. He meets the people who've made it big in the slum, and visits the most expensive real estate Dharavi has to offer. Kevin also meets Mukesh Mehta, the man behind the plans to redevelop the entire square mile of Dharavi to create 30,000,000 square feet of housing, schools, parks and roads to serve some of the existing families residing in the area, along with 40,000,000 square feet of residential and commercial space. Kevin weighs up what will be lost when Dharavi goes.
