Abstract [sv]

Genom att undersöka hur sex olika grupper i kommunerna Katrineholm och Malmö pratar om och argumenterar kring källsortering syftar studien till att identifiera argument och uppfattningar kring källsortering i de två kommunerna. Tre fokusgrupper i ålderskategorierna 20-26, 30-45 och 46-65 utfördes i varje kommun. Dessa sex fokusgrupper jämfördes sinsemellan för att undersöka likheter och skillnader mellan de tre ålderskategorierna och kommunerna. Dessutom ställdes resultatet mot tidigare forskning för att utläsa om studien speglade återkommande argument i tidigare studier eller om nya argument framställs. Resultatet av studien visar på att närhet till återvinningsstationer, underhåll av återvinningsstationer, platsbrist i hemmet, kunskap om källsorteringsprocessen och hur individen ska sortera, tanken för miljön och positiv feedback benämndes som drivkrafter till att deltagarna i studien sorterade mera. Faktorer som lagkrav och taxeringsavgifter uttryckte deltagarna som obetydliga eller rentav hinder när det kommer till deras källsortering. Resultatet av studien visar på att inga direkta skillnader mellan kommunerna kunde utläsas, dock kunde skillnader i argument mellan ålderskategorierna utläsas.

Abstract [en]

By examine how six different groups in Katrineholm and Malmö talks and arguments about recycling this study aim to identify arguments and perceptions about recycling in the two municipalities. Three focus groups in the age categories 20-26, 30-45 and 46-65 were performed in each municipality. These six focus groups were compared among each other to identify similarities and differences between the age categories and municipalities. Furthermore, previous science and the results from this study were compared in aim to investigate whether this study reflects arguments and perceptions in previous studies or if new arguments were established. The result in this study show that proximity to recycling stations, maintenance of recycling stations, lack of space in the home, knowledge about recycling processes, knowledge about how to recycle, the environmental mentality and positive feedback are, for the participants in this study, working as motivation factors to recycle more. Factors as legislative demands and rate billing were seen as insignificant or in some cases obstacles when increase the participant’s recycling. The results of this study show no differences between the two municipalities, however, differences in arguments and perceptions between the age categories could be interpreted.
