Episode Summary

Richard Hammond gets down and dirty at the Denver Regional Landfill where he learns how to operate three trash machines - the Compactor, Scraper and Bulldozer. The Bulldozer is used to spread garbage so the other machines can work properly, it can push up to 22 tons of waste. The Compactor, which weighs more than the last 11 Super Bowl championship teams combined, is used to crush the rubbish. Lastly, the Scraper covers the refuse and can hold up to 40 tons of dirt. Richard not only has to master all three, he is challenged to maintain the machines as well, which means cleaning them at the end of a hard day�s work.
