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.
With our unique experience and expertise, Norwaste can offer a wide range of consulting services, see examples here:
We offer various courses and are usually tailor-made for your waste disposal company. We currently have three courses. Introductory course to the waste and recycling industry where the target group is, for example, new employees, sustainability managers and board meeting representatives in waste companies. We have also developed a course on "Biological factors in the waste and recycling industry" to increase competence and awareness for those who work in the industry. KThe phrase "Odor - risk, cleaning and handling" is for everyone who works with odor pollution such as the state administration and for facilities where odor is a challenge.
The waste market
Waste management in a circular economy
Waste management is a complicated industry. New technology offers great opportunities for new and better value chains, whether in terms of collection, sorting, processing or marketing. Norwaste has knowledge of framework conditions, technological solutions, waste value chains and the market for recycled raw materials so that you can succeed with your business.
With our long experience of state and municipal decision-making processes, we can make a difference for authorities and municipalities and municipal waste companies, whether the need is related to regulatory development, municipal waste plans or other plans and procurements.
Waste management globally
In many parts of the world, the challenges surrounding waste management are significant. Lack of collection and a sound and sustainable waste treatment cause plastic to spill onto the sea and is the largest source of marine waste globally. The need to put in place systems for collection and handling of waste resources is urgent. At the same time, the infrastructure is deficient, and a large informal sector is in many places the only contributor to recycling. Norwaste has the knowledge to understand complicated structures and to help projects succeed.
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.
