One man's trash is another man's treasure, and nowhere is this clearer than in today's junkyards. Modern Marvels shows how these seemingly chaotic places work, revealing the many ways their owners and operators create value out of discarded objects. Whether it's stripping workable parts from otherwise broken machines or extracting and recycling components like glass and steel, if there's profit to be made, they will find it. This program tours a number of these deceptively ingenious operations with the men who know them best, presenting fascinating tales of extraordinary finds and watching as refuse gets reborn, reused, and retired.
