Junkyard Planet: The Billion-Dollar Trash Trade

Adam Minter

Venue: The Apartment

Wednesday, September 25th

6:30 p.m.

Shanghai’s own Adam Minter talks about his first book,Junkyard Planet: Travels in the Billion-Dollar Trash Trade, which comes out November 12. Junkyard Planet is an insider’s account of the hidden world of the multi-billion dollar, globalized recycling business — from the U.S. to China and points in between. In Minter’s telling, globalized recycling is far more complicated than a tale of dumping; it is, rather, nothing less than the secret back-story of globalization over the last thirty years. The presentation will include never-before-seen video and images from his reporting for Junkyard Planet.
