In the distant future, a small waste-collecting robot inadvertently embarks on a space journey that will ultimately decide the fate of mankind.
Voice in commercial:
Too much garbage in your face? There's plenty of space out in space! BnL StarLiners leaving each day. We'll clean up the mess while you're away.
For the ship to have survived 700+ years in space, everything would have to be recycled (including the passengers). Dumping huge amounts of trash out in space would eventually deplete the ship of materials needed to maintain operations. This is likely a metaphorical/stylistic decision by the filmmakers, as a reflection of the "Consume and discard" BnL attitude that led to the desolation of Earth in the first place.
We also don't see enough detail of the ejected garbage to tell whether it actually represents the full variety of waste the ship would have produced (for example, there doesn't seem to be any water in the garbage); it's possible that some things are recycled while others are jettisoned. Furthermore, "outer space" isn't as empty as we imagine it to be; many basic elements could theoretically be harvested from the ship's surroundings, and the ship could have capabilities for using that material that we simply don't see.
In the international versions, additional credits with dubbing information are shown after the main credits, during which Wall-E turns different objects into cubes of garbage. At the end, two gigantic Wall-A robots collide in the front of the screen.
