Episode Summary

Mike assumes the responsibilities of a garbage collector as he takes to the streets of San Francisco's Chinatown at night, hauling away several tons of garbage. After carrying several tons of garbage down the narrow corridors and steep staircases of Chinatown, Mike moves onto San Francisco's Recycle Central, located on Pier 96. As part of his trash collection endeavor, Mike will head to an organic food waste processing plant and then on to a Napa Valley winery. Later, he heads out to sea with a "man who is obsessed with sharks" - a marine biologist who shows Mike how to catch and categorize sharks for research information. Finally, Mike heads to a junkyard where he takes on the task of a disassembly, parts location and engine removal in a single day.moreless
