    The aim of this thesis is to find out how household waste management is arranged by some Finnish cities and what kind of material the cities produce for households regarding waste management. Waste management is referred to as it is described in each city’s waste management regulations. This study was made by using qualitative content analysis. The data was gathered from five different city´s websites and waste management company´s websites. Waste management instructions are widely found on the Internet. The instructions within the five different cities have similarities regarding for example sorting different waste types or presenting the instructions in a search engine -mode. Some differences were found in the instructions of packing the waste but due to legislation the instructions were nearly the same in each city. Differences were mostly due to geographical reasons such as acreage or the density of population.
