Content descriptions

General Note: Includes index.
Summary: "When you drop your Diet Coke can or yesterday's newspaper in the recycling bin, where does it go? Probably halfway around the world, to people and places that clean up what you don't want and turn it into something you can't wait to buy. In Junkyard Planet, Adam Minter--veteran journalist and son of an American junkyard owner--travels deeply into a vast, often hidden, multibillion-dollar industry that's transforming our economy and environment"--Dust jacket flap.
