Why do some people not recycle their household waste?– a study of attitudes
Today most people recycle their household waste, but only a few recycle every fraction theypossibly can and there are still some who do not recycle at all. What is it that keeps somepeople from recycling their waste? Is it just that they do not care or is it that they do not havethe knowledge about the how and why of recycling? Is the reason perhaps that some peopledo not trust the system? This is a small study about the attitudes that can be found amongpeople who do not recycle their household waste. Different reasons for the attitudes arediscussed. This is done without any generalization of the people who have made the choicenot to recycle their waste. The results were reached through a questionnaire and literaturestudy. 34 of the 35 people who chose to participate in this study said that they recycle fourfractions or more of their household waste. Which these four fractions are vary from person toperson, but the main reason to recycle was, in this study, for the sake of the environment.Among the reasons not to recycle that came up was the lack of possibility close to where onelive. Another reason was pure laziness. One of the major conclusions from this study is that itis too small of a study to reach the people that have chosen not to recycle.
