About the show:

What happens to all the waste we discard? Not everything lands up in the incinerator. Stuff like our mobile phones, refrigerators, e-waste or clothes? We imagine them being reused or recycled. But that's one side of the story. Presenter Jason Godfrey is on a mission to find out where our trash goes.
