Abstract [en]

According to the European Union waste hierarchy, waste should first of all be minimized. Reuse and material and energy recycling come next. Lastly the waste should be thrown at the refuse tip. In the inner city of Stockholm waste handling can be done in various types of ways. The solutions vary as a result of the type of architecture of the building and its condition. Waste handling in the inner city of Stockholm works relatively well and there is a will among people to recycle and to sort out their waste, however it must be as easily accessible as possible. From a cost and working environment perspective there are more efficient solutions especially for buildings with an inner yard where there is a long and narrow distance for the refuse collectors. A longer distance will result in a higher fee for waste handling. What could be done is to look over current rooms, if there are better, more cost efficient solutions. There is a problem with the lack of space in the buildings. Other solutions could be to invest in recycling stations underground or disposers. This would give an initial cost but it would pay in the long run and it would also give a better opportunity to use food waste which is currently relatively limited in the inner city of Stockholm. To give people the possibility to use their waste is an important part in implementing the European Union waste hierarchy.
