This paper examines the plastic pollution in Roskilde Fjord. The purpose of this paper is to analyse the causes of macro plastic pollution, trace the down the source of the pollution, and discuss possible solutions to solve the problem. On that basis, we have conducted 12 beach monitorings on carefully selected beaches along the inlet of Roskilde Fjord. Furthermore, the project categorized the marine litter with the purpose to map out the local sources. The project focuses on local politics in which we had two semi-structured interview with two employees from Roskilde municipality for a deep analyse of the local possible action. The structure of the project is based upon the DPSIR framework. The approach has primary been abductive and should be assessed by the critical realism’s epistemological principles. We define three externalities in the Danish Waste System and conclude that the primary sources of the plastic pollution in Roskilde Fjord, comes from recreate use and hunting, food packaging and plastic bags. The municipality main options are limited to behavioural regulation that has short-term and limited efficiency. We therefore conclude that the solution for the municipality is partnering with local actors.
