Organising waste in the city

Policy Press

Using Actor-Network Theory the chapter describes how waste governance and policies are translated into socio-technical practices. Based on ethnographical research, the author narrates the journey of his wine bottle from the container collected by the regional waste management company in Molfetta in southern Italy until it becomes part of the glass purchased by a multinational corporation in Italy. After presenting the ethnographic account, the chapter discusses relevant insights about action and strategies, places and levels, interest and identities of the Italian waste governance in practice.

Keywords:   Waste governance, Actor-Network Theory, socio-technical practices, Italy
