Yolanda and Rogelio Garcia Sr. live nothing like their children, and that is exactly how they'd dreamed it. For 21 years, the Garcias have supported their family by picking through garbage, often cutting their fingers on broken glass while searching for cans and bottles. Late at night they make their living on the darkened streets and back alleys of Los Angeles, recycling other people's trash for cash. They've collected more than 8 million cans and bottles to help put two children through college.
