What happens to our garbage after we throw it away? Over 300 millions tonnes of solid waste is produced in North America every year - a number so big, it's virtually meaningless.
In this documentary, we measure our waste footprint by storing our trash, recycling, and composting for 30 days. We visit the Vancouver Landfill in Delta after the city-wide organics ban is implemented to see where all our food waste has been going. We then meet three local innovators (EnterraFeed Co, Harvest Power, Northwest Waste Solutions) who are changing the way the world thinks about solid waste.
