On Monday night Four Corners investigates the big business of rubbish and where it ends up. Taking out the bins is a weekly ritual but establishing what happens next is far from transparent. In interviews with insiders, reporter Caro Meldrum-Hanna exposes the hidden practices occurring in several areas of the waste industry. The program reveals how the lucrative trade in our rubbish has attracted unscrupulous operators who are gaming the system and making a fortune in the process. Four Corners' cameras have captured eye-opening footage of the flourishing trade in our rubbish. Senior members of the industry say they're taking a big risk by speaking out but believe the need for reform is too great to remain silent.
