One person's trash is another persons's treasure in this vivid picture-book ode to creative recycling -- and to loyal friends. Anyone can dive for treasure in the ocean, but Steve dives for it in his neighborhood dumpster! As he delves into the trash each weekend, Steve encourages his young neighbors (aka the Diving Team) to see the potential in what other people throw away. With a little bit of imagination, trash can be transformed into treasure -- and as the Diving Team soon discovers, it might even help a friend in need.
