Organic Waste

Organic waste is first and foremost food waste. This is food waste of any kind, like bread, meat leftovers, vegetable peels et cetera.

Organic Waste

What Is Organic Food Waste?

Food, both raw and prepared.

  • Bread and cake leftovers
  • Meat and fish waste
  • Coffee grinds, tea leaves and filters
  • Milk products
  • Leftover fruit and vegetables - including peels
  • Rice and pasta
  • Shells from eggs, nuts and kernels
  • Kitchen roll used in food preparation
  • Oils and other fats

Organic waste does not include garden waste!

Why Do I Have To?

Because local government has decided we should and because the country as a whole has to meet certain environmental goals. Furthermore it makes sense. We use your organic waste to produce biogas instead of just wasting energy on burning it. It also means that through the waste product bio pulp, we return the phosphor to the soil, which is vital for food production.

And it won't cost you a penny! You do not have to pay for the new bin for organic waste nor for the small green kitchen bin for the organic waste.

When Is It My Turn?

We're already collecting organic waste from single family homes in all postcodes in the Municipality.

Apartment buildings and council housing in the whole of the municipality will be added throughout 2018/19.

Don't Worry - It's Quite Simple Once You Get started!

It may all seem a bit complicated, but it really isn't. We know this from the people, who have already started sorting their waste into the four fractions.
