The complex frame of interpretation that arises from waste production as a cultural problem is here observed as a social fact and as a metaphor. Waste constitutes a real world, complex and symmetrical to that of consumptions: a world which, behind the mirror in which the consumer civilization loves to reflects and become aware of it, gives us back the truest nature of the risks that populate our daily lives.
