Carmen and Elias Pacheco

Jerome Beverages, 2100 Jerome Ave, Bronx NY

Carmen and Elias Pacheco, married for 52 years, collect cans along Jerome Avenue near 181st st. Originally from Ecuador, they have lived in the Bronx for four years. They are too old to get regular jobs, they say; they survive by recycling bottles and cans.
