Completed Projects

Project Title: Waste minimisation culture in Palmerston North households

This research project aims to understand the drivers and barriers to household waste minimisation in Palmerston North. Residential waste practices occur behind closed doors and, for many, the question of waste is only brought to consciousness and mediated by local curb side services. Trisia Farrelly and Corrina Tucker wanted to know what challenges and drivers Palmerston North households might be faced with when asked to minimise their household waste as much as practicable. The project involved fortnightly 'active interviews', ongoing waste audits, curb side trials, product trials, a site visit to the Awapuni Resource Recovery Park, and hands-on workshops with four Palmerston North households over a nine-month period. The unique methodological approach applied in this action research project revealed participants' household waste attitudes, knowledge, and practices. The research provides sound recommendations for residential household waste minimisation in Palmerston North.
