Littered cigarette butts pose an environmental problem. Until now, there has been a lack of knowledge about what quantities it makes up.
In collaboration with the City of Oslo, Norwaste has received support from the Handelens Miljøfond to map littering in Oslo. The project will provide key figures on annual plastic waste from the most important clean-up activities in Oslo municipality. Today, there is no total overview of the littering situation in Oslo, the project will therefore contribute valuable insight and data on the amount and type of waste that goes astray through littering.
The project was carried out in collaboration with Bergfald Miljørådgivere and SALT Lofoten. An interdisciplinary collaboration has provided a report to the Norwegian Environment Agency showing the status of EPS, within production, waste management and possible measures to reduce littering.
Ine comes from 5 years in Oslo REG, where she has worked with waste management and service development within waste management. Among other things, she has worked with the introduction of source sorting in schools in Oslo, which has required good cooperation between the municipal administration and several agencies.
