    New York City's Department of Sanitation picks up more than 12,000 tons of refuse and recyclables every single collection day.

The collection is now housed in a Sanitation Department garage, but may one day be open to the public. VOA's Bernard Shusman reports from the M-11 Sanitation Garage in New York City.
