Userneeds’ panel members sort their waste

October 15th, 2020

There is more and more focus on waste sorting and why we should sort it. It can be difficult for some to figure out how to sort the waste, and others may find it too difficult. At Userneeds, we have found it interesting to ask our panel members in a quick poll the following question: “Do you sort your waste?”

There is an increasing focus on waste sorting and sustainability. Waste consists of different materials and must therefore not be mixed together. Waste sorting is about conserving the already extracted resources and reducing the production of new raw materials. But do people feel that they are sufficiently informed about how to sort the waste and do they sort it? At Userneeds, we have found it interesting to ask our panel members in Ireland and the Nordics the question: “Do you sort your waste?”.

The results of our quick poll have shown that the majority of Userneeds’ panel members sort their waste. Between 60 percent (Finland) and 71 percent (Norway) answer yes to the question if they sort their waste. At the same time, between 24 percent (Norway) and 34 percent (Finland) answer that they sort it partly. This shows that the majority of all panel members sort all their waste or partly. 94 percent in Finland, 95 percent in respectively Norway and Sweden, 96 percent in Denmark and 97 percent in Ireland answer either yes to the question if they are sorting their waste or that they partly do so.

Thereby, there are very few members of the Userneeds’ panel who do not sort waste. Only 2.7 percent in Ireland and between 4.5 percent (Denmark) and 5.8 percent (Finland) in the other countries answer either no to the question or no because they lack information about it.

Thus, according to this quick poll, there is not much difference between whether the panel members in the different countries sort waste or not.

We hope you found it interesting to read about the result. You can answer quick polls on your personal member page U +. Log in here.
