Abstract [en]

Every year bulky waste is stashed outside and around the waste rooms that could be reused if taken care of properly. The European Union has set the waste hierarchy to lead the society in a direction towards a more sustainable consumption and waste management. This master thesis is based on the wastefulness of natural resources and the possibilities to take care of them. The interest of reuse of furniture and furnishings within a community based on students from Luleå University of Technology has been researched. This has resulted in a guide for implementation of a reuse event, which was tried out in April 2017.

 

It seems that students have potential to reuse more than they normally do, which has been confirmed through questioners and a case study. Fifty percent of the participating students have obtained furniture or furnishings during the last 12 months and just a small part of them has disposed of something through reuse facilities or websites during the same period. The majority showed interest for used goods and the main reason for this was economics.

 

To sum up, there is potential for reuse methods that involve students of LTU which could save nature not only a lot of CO2 emissions but also i.e. eutrophication, acidification, water and chemicals. Which would have a positive impact on the environment.

 

If the reuse event, tested for this thesis, is implemented it is recommended to invite a larger target group and arrange it in a more public space.
