West Oakland's Alliance Recycling Center is where hundreds of low-income East Bay residents trade in plastic and cans to earn a living. But, after 38 years, Alliance is slated to close later this summer.

More on that in an upcoming issue of the Express. Until then, you can tune into KQED/PBS tonight for Dogtown Redemption, a locally produced documentary film on recyclers in West Oakland. 

The doc followed three people in West Oakland for seven years as they hustled to make ends meet by recycling at Alliance. It will premiere tonight at 10 p.m., but there are repeat airings on Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday (here's KQED's listings).
