Abstract (300 words maximum)

In our project we have been researching garbage and how to analyze and draw conclusions. We have been studying how garbage that is found can be used to determine interesting facts about a person or place. By using this technique, we have been reviewing each of our group members garbage to draw conclusions about each other. By viewing each other’s garbage individually we have been able to determine cultural differences, gender differences, and difference in how we each live our daily lives. Most of the garbage found was food waste or paper products used to eat. This made is easy to determine that amount of people living in the house, but difficult to determine age and gender.
