CNBC’s documentary, "Trash Inc: The Secret Life of
Garbage," premiers on Wednesday, September 29th at 9pm ET/PT.
Reported by CNBC’s Carl Quintanilla, "Trash Inc: The Secret Life of
Garbage," takes an inside look at what happens to our garbage after we
throw it out – where it goes, who touches it, and who makes money. Beyond
the bags piled at the curb, viewers will see the intricate logistical ballet
performed every day by armies of sanitation workers, engineers, and even
entrepreneurs, to get rid of – and sometimes get rich from – our trash.
Viewers will also get a stunning and surprising look, once we throw something
away, at where “away” can be – just part of the exploding worldwide
environmental challenge posed by garbage.
