Making a Green Machine: The Infrastructure of Beverage Container Recycling

-

This project examines the modern history of recycling of bottles and cans in Norway, Sweden, and the United States. The book especially focuses on the development of technological solutions for handling a problem that has been transformed from infrastructural to environmental over the course of the last 40 years, and the implications of this transformation for consumers, policy makers, and businesses. This project grows out of my interest in the histories of waste, recycling, and technologically mediated modern environmentalism.
