Abstract (300 words maximum)

In our project so far our group has been able to discover how much you are able to determine about one’s environment just from their garbage. We have been researching how you are able to determine how many individuals there may be in a household,how there is little to no difference between female and male waste,and daily events that occur in one’s day or week. We came to this analysis from our different assumptions and observations of each other’s garbage. For instance there was no obvious indication of either gender in any of the trash we analyzed.
