Abstract [sv]

”Halmstads Fastighets AB” is a local real estate company investing in sustainable development. One problem though is that the domestic waste, particularly the source separation, at the three resident blocks for students’ isn´t working very well. This creates inconveniences for people and environment as well as decreasing the impression on the estates.

This project has had the ambition to improve the domestic waste and increase the amount of source separation at HFAB´s student hostels. This study is based upon earlier researches, observations, quantitative studies, inquiries made among the students living in those three areas taking part in the project and qualitative studies as well by interviewing some of those who took part in the quantitative studies. Finally a camera surveillance of the environmental disposal station at Gamletull has been installed as an attempt to improve the conditions in the area.

From a general point of view we have found out that most of the inhabitants at these three areas know how to handle their waste but few of them take their responsibility. Source separation serves as a good example, most respondents think it´s of importance to source separate and have got the knowledge how to separate the different groups of waste at the environmental disposal station. But the respondents are just good at sorting out material as glass, wrapping paper and newspapers while less than half of them sort out bulbs, energy saving bulbs, fluorescent tubes, metal packing and hard plastic packings.

This project aims at taking measures which will create a positive solution concerning waste disposal for the estate company. The information and communication between HFAB and the residents must be improved:

• Clear and distinct rules and directions.

• Each entrance and staircase is to have a host.

• New tenants get a personal reception and introduce them to the area.

• Information about how HFAB uses the rent revenues.

• The information should be given in English as well.

Among measures to be mentioned are camera surveillance to prevent permanently damage, maintenance work and to create an internet portal for student areas.

We are satisfied with the result this project has come to hand and look forward to contributing to some progress of this problematic issue.
