The project investigated how residents experience wastelands, green and public spaces. Wastelanders collected views on the use of public space. It focused on the issue of 'waste' and the maintenance of neglected and underutilised spaces. Local residents were challenged to become more involved so that they play an active role in the transformation of their environment as 'stewards of public space'. In filmed interviews residents explained their direct relationship with public space. These interviews were shown in the Trash Taxi that transported visitors of Parckdesign from location to location for more than three months. In exchange for a ride, passengers were asked to help collect the waste on the route in the baskets on the car roof.

Wastelanders, Occupation of Transformation is a project by Jeanne van Heeswijk and Marcel van der Meijs in collaboration with Paul Sixta, Mariska Vogel and residents of Anderlecht. The project formed part of Parckdesign 2012.
