Our sincerest thanks to Max Liboiron and the rest of the fine people at Discard Studies for promoting the launch of Canada's Waste Network. Discard Studies was founded in 2010 and has been a source for thoughtful and provocative writing about that which "is systematically left out, devalued, left behind, and externalized" (1).
Along with frequent and compelling blog posts, Discard Studies has compiled some great resources. While I'd urge you to check them all out, I'd like to highlight the Discard Studies Compendium as a "must see". The Compendium is an ideal place for veteran scholars as well as those new to discard/waste studies to acquaint themselves with the field.
