The Hunter

They say one man's trash is another man's treasure... Well, in Darren Atkinson's case, it's also his job.

2011 / Dominic Girard / The Current, CBC, Canada

They say one man's trash is another man's treasure... Well, in Darren Atkinson's case, it's also his job.

And while most people consider dumpster divers a marginal lot - if they consider them at all - this diver approaches his vocation with a philosophical and entrepreneurial spirit. Producer Dominic Girard joined Darren in the trenches to hear more about it.

The Hunter was produced for The Current in 2010, with editor Dick Miller. Special thanks to Pam Bertrand, Executive Producer, The Current (CBC), and Darren Atkinson.
