Dumpster 4

A garbage truck plows through the dawn silence. It pulls into place next to a dumpster at a residential apartment complex, whereupon Diego, a Chilean trash worker in Houston, wheels the dumpster over to the truck. As the dumpster is lifted and its contents spilled out, images of residents show us who produced this trash, while an unnamed narrator tells of the earliest forms of waste management, highlighting how little has changed over thousands of years.
