Trash is ubiquitous. We see them, create them, and discard them every single day. Yet we do not know what happens after they become wanderers in the trash can. The Granite Tower (GT) Photo Division paid a visit to the Gangnam Environmental Resource Center to discover the sceneries behind waste disposal, and other meaningful values that can be found in throw-outs.
