Every year, we produce over two billion tons of solid waste, with only a small portion being recycled, while the rest is buried or incinerated. Journalist Lucia Blasco tries to figure out the best way to deal with waste. Lucia shows us the huge dumps of Asunción in Paraguay and travels to the small Swedish town of Linköping, famous for its urban heating system powered by a waste incineration plant. But this seemingly foolproof scheme has its downside.
