History Of East Cleveland Dump Site; "What We Keep" Co-author

A massive East Cleveland dump, acres filled with demolition debris in the middle of a residential neighborhood, is now gone. The legal effort to recoup massive cost to clean up the Arco Recycling site, and get money for residents who won a multi-million dollar judgment against Arco, continues. Ideastream's Nick Castele explores the history of the dump and how tax dollars actually helped subsidize it.  Later, we welcome the author of "What We Keep," in which people talk about the one treasured item they'll never part with. What's yours? A piece of jewelry?  A childhood toy? An important letter?
