Complete the proposal under the following headings as they provide guidelines for the overall format and contents of the proposal.

1.Title Page – including your project title your name and student ID (No contents page required)

2. Problem Statement (approximately 100- 300 words) What is your inquiry question or problem? Describe the area that you are researching (one paragraph). Background to your study – set the scene and ensure you have provided enough information (context) and describe your project briefly in summary.

3. Rationale (approximately 200- 300 words) Why was this topic chosen? Write this section in 3rd person.

4. Research Questions (approximately 100 words)

5. Methodology (approximately 100- 300 words) Describe how you investigated your inquiry (past tense). In the method, you are expected to describe in detail exactly how you have found relevant and unbiased information on the topic. For example which search engines you have used, which key words you used to search, which phrases you used and which Boolean structures you used to search with these key words, how you filtered the information sources.

  • What was a particular challenge? (e.g. biased emotive websites were prevalent, lack of statistical evidence)
  • What was specifically helpful or unique to your investigation?
  1. Discussions and Findings (approximately 600- 800 words) Write a synthesis (summary) of all your collected data. You may like to use headings in this section to organise your data and ensure you are addressing each of your research questions.


  1. Conclusions and Implications (approximately 200- 400 words) What are your overall conclusions and are there any implications for the environment, local community or wider community? For example could practices be changed and how, make affirmative action in same way?


  1. Links to the Australian Curriculum (approximately 200- 300 words) Review the Science strand in the Australian Curriculum: Science. Identify the content descriptions that best align with your project. What year are they from? What specific aspects of the research or the problem are most strongly linked with Science as a Human Endeavour, Science Understanding and Science Inquiry Skills?


Year Content descriptor How specifically this relates to YOUR project


The Cross-curriculum priority of sustainability in the Australian Curriculum is described under a range of organising ideas, which themselves are grouped under Systems, World views, and Futures. Your project should have links to some of these areas. What are they and how can they be described?


Specific Statement from Sustainability How specifically this relates to YOUR project


  1. References Use APA 6th to include at least 10 reputable references both in-text and end text.


  1. Appendices Material referred to but not included in the main body of the text should be included here. This may be pictures, graphs, illustrations but you must refer to all figures and tables within the text and you must name and label them correctly e.g. Table 1: add title (above the table); Figure 1: add title (below the figure).

It is expected that the literature show evidence of extensive research. For example:


  • 10 or more references have been considered.
  • An appropriate level of detail of research is demonstrated.
  • An appropriate range of information sources has been used.
  • All questions have been considered.
  • There are no references to yourself. This is not about you.
  • Never use the term etc.
  • Never use underlining.
  • Never use capital letters for a whole word.

Problem Statement

Disposal of waste products has been a problem for most people in most parts of the world. This is because of the link between waste products and environmental health. The failure to dispose waste products in an efficient and safe manner has always resulted to environmental hazards that have threatened the health of people especially those living in urban areas. In Australia, the recycling system and sector has played a leading role in ensuring that wastes products are recycled instead of being released into the environment in their raw states (Tam & Tam, 2006). As such, the Australian recycling sector has played an important role in promoting environment health and protecting the environment from harm. The aim of this project is to examine plastics recycling in Australian and its role in promoting better environmental health outcomes and improving health of people. By recycling plastics, the Australian Recycling sector is at the forefront in preventing environmental degradation and promoting good environmental and public health (Fletcher & Mackay, 1996). Disposing waste products in the right manners is critical to the lives of people especially those living in urban centres. Through research, this paper will help inform plastic disposal practices that would help maintain a healthy Australia.
