Student Edinburgh College of Art Product design waste research

Hello my name is Ross Johnston and I am seeking your permission to talk to some of your staff regarding my final dissertation. I am sure that you get many such requests and I hope that you will be able to assist me in my research.
I am currently a fourth year student studying product design at Edinburgh College of Art. For my final year project I have decided to focus on the challenge to us all regarding waste and its management. Obviously I need to study, in depth, the types of waste being created and where it is ending up. Living in Shetland I have had first-hand experience of large quantities of waste, usually plastics, washing up on our shores and beaches. This is one of the major reasons for me taking on this project.
I would like the opportunity to speak with the most appropriate member of your staff regarding my project. I would not take up too much of their time and I can send my questions beforehand to help. However, it is very important for to legitimise my evidence by speaking first-hand with officials in the field.
I need to get an idea of where the industry is at the moment and the possible solutions that are already being developed. Then I can focus my research on the major issues and come up with possible solutions regarding; recycling, creating new products that limit waste production, creating new products from the waste and raising consumer awareness.
You can contact me by email on rossfgjohnston@btinternet.com, by telephone on 07919374330 or by home mail at my address in Edinburgh Flat 3F3 131 Comiston Road EH10 6AQ. I hope that you can help me on my project and I look forward to hearing from you soon one way or the other. Thank you.
Yours sincerely,

Ross FG Johnston
