Chehab, Kinda, 2022. Enhancing Solid Wastes Separation Behaviour at the Residential Towers, using the Garbage Chute Systems.. Second cycle, A2E. Uppsala: SLU, Department of Molecular Sciences



Solid wastes separation is important for enhancing materials recycling that is good for environment and conservation of natural resources. Citizens have the central role in enhancing solid wastes separation at the household level. Inhabitants’ participation in sorting wastes is a low-cost task but has great economic advantage, but it is very challenging and expensive to engage inhabitants and enhance their sorting behaviours. Despite the municipal efforts in establishing and developing the existing households’ solid wastes separation schemes in Sweden, there are lots of necessary developments needs to be in place. This study is grounded on testing the garbage chute systems to induce solid wastes separation habitual changes at the residential towers. Important facts have been gathered from different studies on existing solid wastes separation schemes and behaviours on national and regional perspectives. Empirical data was gathered through directly asking inhabitants in the residential towers that has the built-in garbage chute system in how these systems can help them sorting their solid wastes. Research leaders at the field of developing the existing solid wastes separation schemes and circular economy initiatives in Sweden, were approached for understanding behavioural transformation determinants available in using garbage chute systems for solid wastes separation at the residential towers. Strategic development of the garbage chute systems to be used for sorting solid wastes at the residential towers was suggested in the work to enhance engagement level of households’ solid wastes separation.
