While the municipality of Copenhagen has rolled out a biowaste gathering and reusage plan. This paper researches the role of the citizen and the bio-bin that was distributed as part of this plan. Through an analysis of the position on the bio-bin of young citizens between the age of 20-29 years old living in Copenhagen, the goal of this paper is to present a re-design of the current bio-bin, that solves the current problems. The paper uses theories and methods from Soft design, design-Sprint, Interviews and material agency to evaluate the current bio-bin MABS and give an insight to the relationship between the citizen, the bin and the municipal. Through the analysis this paper found that the bio-bin and its role in the home of young citizens of Copenhagen municipal, has been subject to little investigation.
