We go on a journey beyond the sink and the drain to find out what happens next
Every single day, we get rid of wastewater, human waste, grease and chemicals in our homes by putting it out of sight, but it still has to be processed and dealt with. In the latest episode of the Brainstorm radio show on RTÉ Radio One, presenter Ella McSweeney and guests Jean O'Dwyer (UCC and Irish Research Council) and Tom Curran (UCD) tell us where all the waste from our homes actually ends up.
