Episode Summary

EDIT
Is the Big Apple rotten to the core with trash? Discover the complete history of trash in Manhattan, from the first Dutchman who filled its marshes to the freegans who empty its trashcans. Over the last 400 years, New York City’s trash has served as a health hazard to immigrants, a valuable commodity to crooked politicians and the very foundation on which the city is built. With a population of 8.3 million producing 12,000 tons of trash a day, collecting all that garbage is one challenge, finding a home for it is another.moreless
