Handling of construction masses as waste : Inventory of a total of 16 waste flows in four different municipalities (English)
Abstract [en]

In the event of construction, trees in the area will be removed and the ground is being prepared. Stumps, litter and earth masses that can be of different variety and quality occurs. Because of the differences of these masses, they have different provisions and their management differs. The purpose of this study was to investigate how construction masses are handled and allocated by various entrepreneurs and the difference between municipalities in Sweden. Problems associated with waste management was identified and suggestions on how these problems can be solved.

 

Information for this study has been obtained through telephone interviews containing 8 questions. The interviews are made within 15-30 minutes with 16 different entrepreneurs who is handling these masses. These entrepreneurs were seated in Norrbotten, Västerbotten, Västernorrland and Gävleborg. First contact with entrepreneurs from different municipalities was taken by e-mail and in some cases, it was necessary to complement these with phone call requests.

 

Clear differences between entrepreneurs and municipalities handling was not determined because of the few numbers of entrepreneurs. It was also difficult to determine the most usual deposition, but it was clear that the handling of construction masses is problematic. The most usual problems are related to economy and knowledge about why the legislation exists. By giving out more information about the legislation and how to handle their masses some of these problems could decrease. Information is a cheap and simple solution, but problems and limitations are always going to exist if the management is considered too expensive.
