Optimazation of the waste management operations - can we improve?

This autumn, Norwaste worked on several projects within operational optimization of collection. Norwaste has prepared an experience-based model to assess efficiency and resources used in waste collection. This has proven to be a useful model. Our review and analyses have led to very different proposals for changes. The proposals can lead to significant cost reductions or increase resources needed.

Roadside litter

This summer, Norwaste has surveyed littering along three roads in Innlandet county. This is part of Hold Norway Clean's project "På rett veg", with assistance from Mesta and Innlandet county council.

Norwaste maps litter in Oslo municipality

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.
