Surprising introduction to the many facets of our waste problem.
Most of us put our garbage out at the curb and never give it another thought. WASTE connects consumer habits, from the individual to the multinational, with the problem. This film views common and uncommon examples of the generation, disposal, and re-use of a variety of wastes in an amusing and informative way.

"Recommended as a must purchase. One hopes this video becomes a benchmark for many other productions about waste."
"The comprehensive perspective ranges from fast-food wrappers to sewage sludge, and from junked cars to space junk... Provocative viewing for high school and college students and public library and community group audiences."
"This nicely produced overview effectively discusses the waste problem and gives no easy answers. Useful... in biology, ecology, home economics and social studies classes."
