This work is speculating the possible consequences of current waste management practices in the City of Zagreb. Through these scenarios, the authors are questioning the tension of responsibility over waste management. The tension spans between the responsibility of citizens for their personal waste management solutions, and the city’s waste management policies. They have shown some methods that the City of Zagreb and its Public utility company are to use in the future, while also showing the methods that the citizens have developed to make their day—to—day cohabitation with waste bearable, thus emphasizing the paradoxical fact that the responsibility for waste management is supposedly individual. The given scenarios have resulted in artefacts — materialized objects that are borrowed from the future, relevant to the location. They serve as a gentle warning to our generation about what might come in the near future.
