C4 to make rubbish reality show
A rubbish tip
Ten people will spend three weeks living on a rubbish dump
Channel 4 is to screen a documentary series involving 10 people living on one of the UK's biggest rubbish sites.

The participants will spend three weeks sourcing everything they eat and drink from things other people throw away.

"It's a way of analysing issues of how we live, what we throw away and how wasteful we are," Channel 4's director of television Kevin Lygo said.

"They will have to feed, clothe and heat themselves." Dumped will last a week and be broadcast in the autumn.
