Garbage Problem in Cairo?

Jump to last reply

My family has been planning a trip to Egypt for the end of the year
(to Cairo, Luxor, Aswan, etc.). There have been a number of very
negative articles about Cairo's garbage situation recently (see
below!), and we're wondering how this matches the reality on the
ground. Has anyone here been to Cairo recently and have insight into
how sensationalist or accurate these articles are? This probably
won't stop our trip, but it might affect how much time we spend
directly in Cairo itself.
