Although an unlikely topic for a 75-minute theatrical documentary, the viewpoints of Montreal city garbagemen that are presented here might stand up to a one-hour slot at prime time. The astute, socially insightful, and comic statements that these men offer in relation to the objects and the amounts of food that society throws away would give anyone pause. One of their lessons would be to "waste not" and at least recycle whenever possible. Songs and views of neatly packaged garbage waiting for pick up down tree-lined streets, as well as views of a landfill complete this look at the underbelly of consumption in the provincial capital of Quebec.
