What are the barriers and opportunities that influence your approach to household waste management?
“Did you know that by throwing away a burger, you waste the equivalent amount of water used in a 90-minute shower?
My name is Keana and I am studying a Bachelor of Regional and Urban Planning (Honours) at the University of Queensland. As part of the specialized part of my degree, I have to write a thesis.
My research topic for my thesis is: Opportunities and obstacles influencing the implementation of household food waste management systems in Greater Brisbane.
Essentially, I examine what factors can influence a household to participate in sustainable food waste management methods, and what factors can prevent a household from doing so. My study area is ‘Greater Brisbane’, defined by five (5) Council areas – Moreton Bay, Brisbane, Ipswich, Logan and the Redlands.
I would absolutely appreciate your participation in my survey. This should take around 10-20 minutes.
All other details regarding my survey can be found in the participant information sheet which is attached to my survey ethics form via this link – https://survey.app.uq.edu.au/household-waste-management-across-greater-brisbane
The survey was created using a secure UQ-approved platform known as Checkbox Survey and submissions will close at noon on Monday, September 12.
