Waste collection in private households

Ongoing

 

How can we use information and improved service to increase residents' sorting and recycling of hazardous waste? As the Umeå Municipality has adopted a zero tolerance on hazardous waste in 2020, measures are required to facilitate Umeå residents' recycling to achieve the goal.


The measure aims to investigate the effectiveness of various solutions for waste management. A pilot project is done in residential Ålidhem in Umeå where residents receive additional information about why and how they sort their hazardous waste, some households will also have a collection of their hazardous waste to determine whether it provides an additional effect. Accurate measurements of the amount of hazardous waste in household garbage before and after the project will be done in order to ensure the effects of the action.


The project is implemented in cooperation with the municipal companies Umeva and Bostaden.
