Abstract: "May the solid urban waste can be considered a common, such as others previously studied by AID? This is the central question we propose to answer in this work, as an introductory part of the doctoral research from the author on the governance of waste management. Recovered by individuals and communities living in precarious conditions while it became feedstock for power generation, solid waste became a secondary resource of great value. At the same time, emerged in the last two decades a strong discourse around urban ecology guiding the action public in the metropolis, intermediate cities and also sectoral policies for waste management. Describing and analyzing the actors, the rules ,the control system and arrangements around the solid wastes from Rio de Janeiro region, Brazil, we propose in this paper an introductory analysis in the IAD Framework, in the complex network of actors and disputes that unfolds behind human waste."
