Sammanfattning: In the residual waste bags in the municipality of Halmstad, only 28% of the waste was sorted correctly according to the pick analysis from spring 2018. In the municipality's new waste plan from 2019, one of the objectives is that this number should be 75% in 2025. Our aim with this study is to provide a basis on what it takes to get more inhabitants in Halmstad to sort their waste correctly. We hope that our results will be useful for Halmstad’s municipality in their work to achieve objective 2.1 in the new waste plan. Our main study question is: What would be required to get residents in Halmstad to sort their waste to a greater degree? To get answers to these questions, we conducted telephone and physical interviews with residents of the Vallås district in Halmstad. Our results from the interviews show that women recycle more than men, those who live in detached house/townhouses and co-operative apartment recycle more than those who live in rented apartment, age group 18-35 recycled the least and the ones over 65 years recycled the most. The main reason why people recycle is for the sake of the environment. Of those who did not recycle at least one fraction, most said that it is either because they could not manage to or that they have too far to a recycling station. According to our study, there are clear differences between different groups of inhabitants and their recycling habits, which means that you have to insert different actions for different groups. Some appropriate actions could be to inform about source separation more often on tv and in newspapers and to provide information in more languages.
