Baseball Recyclers

Dawn Vieyra and Jorge Lopez are lifelong LA Dodgers fans. But with the ups and downs in the economy, they've had to get creative in funding their shared passion. Last year they got the funds for their season tickets by picking up bottles and cans at home games. Each game, the roommates would fill the bed of their pickup truck to the rim with recyclables. The profits were enough to pay for their season's tickets. But this year, times are even tougher and for the first time in a long time, they can't afford the tickets.

Dawn and Jorge talk with Dick about the rise and fall of their recycling passion.
