One Man's Trash . . .

|

Anthony McCorkle is so broke, he has to borrow his brother's car for his job delivering newspapers. That's why many people along his route in Staten Island allow him to collect and sell the recyclables out of their bins. But the Department of Sanitation says its workers are the only ones who can collect recyclables. They caught McCorkle with a car full of bottles. They impounded the car and are threatening McCorkle and his brothers with fines of $2,000 each for illegally taking the city's bottles.
