Ben and Alisha receive an anonymous tip that a major waste disposal firm may be breaking environmental laws. The firm, Brucks, specializes in incinerating waste but they may be dumping the ash inappropriately and releasing toxic waste into the atmosphere. The case becomes particularly difficult when Alisha's father uses insider information to buy shares in Brucks and deposited some of the profits in her name. The government has little choice but to support Brucks given that landfill is no longer a reasonable option and it is the major incineration firm in the country. Ben and Alisha finds themselves arrested when they disobey a court injunction to stay away from the company.
