We may be seeing the last generation of people who wander the streets pushing supermarket shopping carts in search of bottles and cans. Maybe not, but it's hard to imagine of new generation of youngsters willing to work so hard and so long for nickels. Buffalo is abundant with bottle collectors. At Artvoice we're going to begin talking to these silent shadows who shuffle through the streets and pick through the recycle bins and garbage cans. We'll talk to 100 of them and discover the quilted fabric of lives that make up our bottle collecting popultion.
