Engaging Garbage: an Ant/Cct Study of Municipal Food Scrap Composting

This ethnographic actor-network and translation-theoretic study explores the creation and implementation of a municipal program for the curbside collection and composting of household food waste. Implications of the study include the need to recognize and manage the agency of non-human actors in efforts to bring about a more sustainable society.
