Conceptualizing modes in this way facilitates analytical clarity although it is recognized that modes of governing are not discrete entities but are themselves fluid structures and processes as the technologies associated with them evolve and institutional relations change. Seen through this analytical lens waste has become problematized at a range of scales from the European to the local and different rationalities and technologies for governing have evolved in particular locations which in turn leads to a variety in the ways in which waste is [re]conceived by individuals and public, private and civil society sectors.

The aim of such an approach is to illustrate the dynamic and multifaceted nature of waste governing as well as describing the modes of governing that currently shape the policy and practice of waste management. As with Fagan (2004) and Parto (2005), Bulkeley et al. (2007) construct their analytical framework in the light of empirical findings. The methodological approaches used by all these authors have commonalities in their adoption of documentary analysis and qualitative interviews as the baseline means of accessing experiences and activities of waste governance.

Some have emphasized the role of networks in the functioning of waste practices (Fagan 2004), while others have developed arguments using institutions as the driving force in waste management systems (Parto 2005). While networks and institutions are familiar features of governance analyses there are also studies that have expanded these conceptual boundaries to engage with Foucauldian inspired governmentality (Bulkeley et al. 2005) and political ecology in order to understand how waste is governed (Myers 2005).
