Waste and Waste Water

Waste, making the best possible use of resources and keeping the costs of waste management at a stable and low level.

These are the key objectives of the waste management concept that the municipal authority has been implementing since 2011.

Setting up a citizen-friendly recycling centre and changing to collection and transportation of waste based on weight not only reflects these objectives, it also implements some important environmental initiatives. Waste prevention and consistent recycling means that valuable raw materials and energy can be conserved. At the same time, it reduces emissions of gases harmful to our climate.
