Most of the news and feature stories I did in my 15-year career are the property of the newspapers I worked for and cannot be reprinted here. However, a few freelance pieces are mine to post or link to online.

These articles were derived from my master’s thesis research:

Buchanan, C. (1988) "How Europe Puts out the Trash", "Sweden puts waste to work", "Holland: Among world's best recyclers", and "Austria: Green Bin movement grows". Ottawa Citizen. Oct. 2, 1988: D8.


There were more than 1,500 of my bylined articles in the Ottawa Citizen over 12 years. These are available through the FP Infomart database, which is expensive to use unless you have university access. Because these are the property of the company that owned the newspaper, I cannot reprint or link to most of them here.
