Abstract [en]

The waste fractions offered to households in Sweden differ depending on where you live. The responsibility for the waste are grounded by the Swedish law where the municipality are responsible for the collection of household waste and FTI are responsible for collecting all packages and papers that the households sorts out. A new waste regulation is under consideration where the responsibility for the household waste may change. The bulky waste from households is collected at recycling centers where the households leave it in different containers for different fractions. These recycling centers are formed different and the fractions offered in them also differ depending on in what municipality they are located. The reason for the difference seems to depend on the opportunity to recycle the fraction and cross-border cooperation does not seem to exist in any larger scale. The waste fraction offered as FNI also differ depending on municipality where some are offering different fractions while other only offers compostable and combustible waste fractions. The municipality has reached different levels on their work towards better waste management according to the waste stair where reuse and recycling are preferred before another disposal. This often lead to energy recycling of the waste where over half of the Swedish treated waste end up. Materials that are often transported to energy recycling are textiles and thermosetting plastic where the plastic can be and are recycled in about 20 municipalities. The authorities and some companies are investigating the possibility to recycle textiles and they have found a way to recycle cotton fibres but in order to build a factory for that there need to collect larger volumes than are collected today. I will investigate if there is a need for more fractions than those offered to the households today.
