For a number of residents in Dogtown, one of Oakland’s poorest neighborhoods, income from collecting and recycling others’ trash is a primary source of income. To the other, wealthier residents of Dogtown, mostly newcomers to this neighborhood, recycling only adds to the dirt and noise in the community. Dogtown Redemption explores the complex dynamics of race, class, and systemic poverty as it tells the story of four recyclers who struggle to survive in a neighborhood already decimated by gentrification, unemployment, addiction, and violence.

What is going to happen to the people supporting themselves with recycling if Alliance Metals closes due to the pressures of the quickly gentrifying neighborhood?
