Bridget stands at the corner of 5th and San Pedro. She is taking a break from her recycling activities....she spends hours each day, pushing a shopping cart loaded with recyclables. Cans, bottles, metal, plastic, anything at all that she can sell by weight at the recycling center located on Alameda. It"s very arduous, hot work, and extremely dirty, as only trash on Skid Row can be. She routinely digs through garbage bins and mountains of trash piled at street corners to mine for bits she can sell.
