Almost everything we consume will one day become waste. At current rates of consumption and growth waste streams are set to rise substantially.

In recent decades waste management practices have made considerable progress. As more goals, policy instruments and measures have been introduced, public environmental awareness has increased. Waste is no longer seen as merely garbage but as a valuable resource. But if we are to handle an ever-increasing volume of waste, we must shift into a higher gear.

In Sweden, an important task is to identify obstacles and opportunities for more sustainable consumption and to correlate behaviour with waste management planning. In addition we also strive to increase waste sorting and recycling by, for example, evaluating different types of collection systems and producer responsibility. Waste affects everyone and everyone can do something to cut down on the amount we produce, not only industry and but also municipalities and households.
