“Hello, Emily! My name's Whiff, because I'm a bit smelly! You're going to help me collect rubbish!”

Emily's Rubbish, retitled Emily and the Garbage in American releases, is the second episode of the eleventh series.


Emily is asked to help a new engine called Whiff, but is mortified to discover he is scruffy and smelly and that the two are to collect rubbish trucks. Emily grudgingly sets off with Whiff, but she is teased dreadfully when they meet Gordon, Henry and James. She runs away from him, but when she passes more engines, they laugh at her as well. She stops at a level crossing where Elizabeth is waiting at and wants to meet the new engine. Emily lies and says he got lost, but Whiff arrives saying that he did not and Emily puffs away. She hides down a branch line, in a tunnel and by a water tower in succession, but is seen every time. She finally manages to lose him when she sees Spencer in front of some rubbish trucks that are in his way. Emily tries to move them over, but they are so heavy that she cannot move them by herself. She asks Gordon and James for help, but they refuse to do so since they are busy, and Emily realises Whiff is the only one who will. After finding him, the two pull the trucks away so Spencer can get through. Spencer is impressed and calls Whiff a useful engine. Emily replies back that Whiff is her good friend, too.





  • When Emily puffs into the tunnel, some of her smoke disappears, indicating a cut.
  • When Emily says "Thank goodness! Now no one will laugh at me for working with such a smelly engine!", her driving wheels are not turning.
  • Gordon has a small scratch on his running board.
  • In the close up of Spencer, his lamp irons are crooked, and there's a mark below his face.
  • James lamp irons are crooked when he says "No thank you."


  • James: Who's your messy new friend with the funny whistle Emily?
  • Gordon: We smelled you coming from miles!
  • Whiff: My name's Whiff!
  • Henry: It suits you! Phew!
