As Denmark moves towards a circular economy, the country must continue to improve its waste management system, including increased residential waste sorting. Increasing citizen participation in waste sorting can be achieved using co-creation, the process of working with citizens to improve the decision-making process of public utilities. In collaboration with the Danish Waste Association, this project used qualitative research methods to identify co-creative practices that can improve the Danish waste sector. The results showed that successful co-creation is a combination of outreach, citizen participation, and collaboration. A set of recommendations was developed to help the Danish waste sector improve waste management services through co-creation.
