This chapter adopts a comparative governance framework to explore evolving narratives of municipal solid waste policy in Ireland and New Zealand through an examination of policy interventions, stakeholder interactions and outcomes. Initially an analysis of the evolving socio-political, economic and environmental policy contexts of the two countries is detailed. This is followed by a mapping of waste policy landscapes and an exploration of the dominant waste discourses. Pivotal sites of interaction over waste matters are subsequently distilled and the emergent practices of demarcated. Finally the outcomes of waste policy are considered in the light of the scalar apparatus and governing technologies adopted in the two countries and the significance of these issues for wider environmental governance outlined.

Keywords:   Waste governance, narratives, municipal solid waste policy, Ireland, New Zealand
