Avfall Sverige visit UK waste management facilities
In May Bertling Enviro was joined by Avfall Sverige in the UK with the purpose to learn more about treatment of waste. Avfall Sverige is the Swedish Waste Management and Recycling association with 400 members from both the public and the private waste management and recycling sectors. 99,9 per cent of the Swedish population are represented through Avfall Sverige. Avfall Sverige represents its members in dealings with politicians, other decision makers, authorities and media, both in Sweden and internationally.
Avfall Sverige’s members makes sure that waste is collected and recycled in all municipalities nationally. In accordance with their vision "Zero Waste", the Swedish municipalities and public companies are the facilitators for the transition towards waste minimization and reuse.
Whilst in the UK, Bertling Enviro took Avfall Sverige to two waste management facilities in Essex. EWD Recycling in Brightlingsea and CSH Environmental Ltd in Colchester.
