For 34 years, New York Sanitation worker, Nelson Molina collected items in the trash on his route in East Harlem. Over 45,000 items, all catalogued and organized on the second floor of the M11 garage. Nelson retired from the job in 2015, but comes to the garage routinely to check in on his "museum." The collection is not open to the public since it is in an active garage, but our hope is to get a proper space with the help of this film.
If you want to contribute in helping Nelson Molina acquire a permanent museum space for his incredible collection of New York City trash, please visit NYC Strongest to donate!
