New York City generates 11,000 tons of household trash each day on average, and the city’s sanitation workers keep a regular schedule to take all that trash away. Anthropologist Robin Nagle discusses New York’s City’s 400-year struggle with trash, which she documents in Picking Up: On the Streets and Behind the Trucks with the Sanitation Workers of New York City. She’s joined by Angelo Bruno, who was a sanitation worker in Greenwich Village for 31 years; Annalee Feliciano, supervisor in the Bronx, and Myron Priester, former Borough Chief of Brooklyn South, who was involved in the Department's response to Hurricane Sandy.
