Does our waste still go to China? What can and cannot get recycled? Does our recycling even get recycled and what can we do about it? Prof Michele Acuto (Connected Cities Lab, University of Melbourne) presents a workshop on the global waste economy – and where the yellow bin fits in.
Circular Thinking: Where Does My Recycling Go? is part of a series of hands-on workshops presented by Assemble Papers to communicate the principles of circular economy at a variety of scales. Starting from individual choices to encompass the global waste system, the series brings experts from across product design, urban design and urban management to guide participants through the steps towards zero waste.
