Sammanfattning (abstract):
This report examines the infrastructure, devices and practices involved in consuming, using, storing and discarding of batteries in households. The aim of the paper is to disclose the opportunities and obstacles, enabling and hindering effective battery recycling practices in households. The paper is informed by studies on material culture, home consumption and waste, and practices of everyday life. In order to study the organisational, material and cultural aspects of household battery recycling, a multi-local ethnographic study is designed – combining interviews and observations. The paper discloses how the coexistence of different batteryscapes (dark, darkish and bright batteryscapes) wherein people, infrastructure (point of collection), devices (batteries, electronics and storing equipment), socialisation and learning (norms and taboos) together give rise to both opportunities and obstacles, enabling and hindering recycling of batteries.
