Recycling is high on the global economic agenda, with governments across the world pledging increases in their recycling rates. However, success in reaching targets often relies on the input and effort of the household and consumer.

'Consumption work' has not been systematically explored as a distinctive form of labour, and this book argues that treating it seriously requires revision of the conventional approach to the division of labour.
