Cognitive, Practical and Normative Aspects for Household Recycling

Sammendrag

Along with the UN-SDG 12 regarding responsible production and consumption, recycling of materials has become one of the most important tasks in a transformation to green societies. This paper addresses some aspects of one of the members of the recycling institution; the households. As a part of this institution, the role of households’ efforts are essential for the societal task of recycling. However, the part (role of) that households play are not always clear for the members as they are somehow in the outer edge of this institution. Institutions are here seen as a set of roles, relations and regulations regarding a common task in society. The research question for this paper is; How do the household comprehend and perform their role in the recycling institution, concerning knowledge, practices and regulations. In simple terms the question is why, or why not, do people recycle. What knowledge do they have about the waste cycles, how do practical conditions shape their everyday recycling, and how do they appraise the importance of this activity? A follow up question here is the importance of these issues for what they actually do in everyday life when handling waste? The data for analyses is based on surveys and interviews of households and waste management. The analysis will be based on what we call institutional mapping, along with interpretation of meaning. The paper is based on a study which is a part of a bigger research project on the formation of the recycling institution in Norway.
