The Doctor and Rose land on a once bustling space station. They find it empty save for Disinfectodroids, who are programmed to clean up all junk, germs and bacteria after a space-plague threatened the space station. The Disinfectodroids were obsessive and cleaned up everything, including the people. They dumped them, with the rest of the Earth's rubbish, on a planet the other side of the galaxy.
The Doctor and Rose are both cleaned up by the Disinfectodroids and sent to the alien planet. Its four-armed, spear-throwing natives are not very happy! With the aid of his sonic screwdriver, the Doctor reverses the flow of rubbish and starts to send everything back to the space-station.
The Disinfectodroids are preparing to clean up the Earth. Back on the space station, natives from the planet and the other people 'cleaned up' overcome the Disinfectodroids. They are sent down to the planet to help clean it up, returning all the rubbish to Acme Cleaning Industries, New Brentford on Earth, via the space station.
