It's the place where old machines come to die. But for some people, it's also a treasure trove of possibilities. It's THE JUNKYARD.
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.
THE JUNKYARD 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.
Enter the strange and mysterious world where the many pieces actually do add up to a whole.
