Action leader(s)

Summary

A flexible fee model for selective waste collection was introduced in Bergen and 8 surrounding municipalities with the aim to reduce the overall amount of waste generated by households by rewarding customers for considering the environment and optimising selective collection. This initiative proved to be effective in reducing the total residual waste.
