1 Sweden Pal Martensson from the City of Goteborg Sweden. 9,4 million inhabitants km 2

2 Goteborg a fast growing sustainable city Sweden s second city Scandinavia s largest port Car and truck industry inhabitants households 80% flats villas/houses 30 juni 2014

3 Waste and recycling services At the household Combustible waste Biodegradable waste (optional) Varying service for bulky waste, packaging, paper, batteries, hazardous and Ca:330 Recycling Stations Packaging paper, plastic. metall, glas newspapers 10 Hazardous Waste Collection Points and mobile unit Hazardous and small electronic waste textile 5 Recycling Centres Bulky waste, garden waste, electrical and hazardous waste, reusable items, textile. etc electronic waste, batteries

4 Household waste collection Bins and compacting garbage trucks standard collection system Vacuum systems for more than inhabitants Undergound containers Methane/electric hybrid vehicles in the truck fleet (Volvo/Norba)

5 Food waste collection in Göteborg

6

7

8 The increase in food waste collection is made by: More resources for customer contacts A change from charging by volume to charging by weight A subsidized tarrif for food waste A change in collection from one-family houses, once a week to every second week

9 We together - are aiming towards an environmentally correct and sustainable waste management, for the benefit of society. This is a very important question to discuss from many different point of view, this a crucial choice we have to do. Incineration, landfill, recycling, reusing, circular economy mm.

10 Total recycling is a big vision - it means not wasting anything. Waste is proof that something is wrong in the society, it s a true evidence. You can try burn it or bury it but still it s an evidence of a society that's not sustainable. Waste means that there are product made that are wrong, we need a redesign of these products so they will fit in to a modern sustainable world.

11 Waste - a resource Treatment of household waste in Sweden, 2011 (%) WE HAVE TO DO Landfill Energy recovery Biological treatment Recycling (material) MUCH BETTER!

12 THIS WAY PLEASE Waste treatment hierarchy Careful and enviromental consumption Reduce Reuse Alelyckan Recycling Energy utilisation Landfill

13 Unique results??? Recycling (material) Biological treatment Energy recovery Landfill Sweden 2010 EU 2010 USA 2010

14 Kg/cap EU 27 Progression from disposal to prevention to recycling in EU EUROSTAT DATA PROGRESSION RESOURCE EFFICIENCY ROADMAP Recycling & composting Disposal (landfill + incineration)

15 The development

16 Important steps of development Household waste to landfill per year (tonnes) Producers responsibility introduced Municipal waste planning compulsory Landfill tax introduced Ban on landfill of combustible waste Ban on landfill of organic waste and national target on food waste On-going national overview

17 Authorities and agencies National level Parliament National environmental targets The Swedish Environmental Protection Agency National waste plan Produces national legislation and guidelines National environmental courts (5 plus one superior): Gives permissions to larger treatment plants Regional level County Administrative Board - government authority (21 counties): Regional environmental targets Permissions and control for most treatment plants Supervision of the regional treatment capacity Municipal level Municipal authorithies: Local enviroenmental targets Local waste plans and regulations Permissions and control of smaller treatment plants

18 Overview model Housholds or companies Waste prevention New products: Biogas, new materials, district heating, electricity, bio-fertilizer Collection and transport Recycling stations Recycling centers Curbside collection Materialrecycling Biological recycling Energy recovery Landfill

19 Public awarness - a success factor Key messages and tools for motivation and to facilitate collaboration: Communication Development of self instructive systems Feed back of the results and that what I do matters Emphasize on the waste holders responsibility and participation

20 Waste prevention in Sweden 99 % material recycling or energy recovery today more focus on waste prevention Information, knowledge and behaviour success factors Long tradition of reuse through flymarkets, second hand, collection at recycling parks, etc Largest challenge: decoupling between generated waste and economic growth Generated household waste in Sweden is predicted to double (Swedish EPA) Generated waste world wide is predicted to rise with 72 % (What a Waste-A global review of Solid Waste Management, mars 2012, World Bank Group)

21 Infrastructure Collection of waste from households based on source separation Curb side collection 630 manned drop-off recycling centers unmanned recycling drop-off stations Treatment and recycling of waste based on the charcter of the waste 58 organic waste facilities 32 waste to energy plants 79 landfills

22 Recycling centers

23 Recycling and treatment Different treatment methods depending on the character of the waste, makes it possible to use the waste as a resource Materials Food waste Combustible waste New products Biogas Biofertilizer District heating Electricity

24 From landfills to modern recycling facilities (Illustrator: Per Josefsson)

25 The An integrated only part thing of a holistic we system need to take out of the circle is Products toxic stuff. Farms Material Households recycling Sewage water cleaning But on the other hand we Biosolids Waste should, of course not Anaerobic digestion Vehicle fuel bring it into the Landfill Incineration Biogas IF we circle! are Cooling/ Zero heating production Waste NO NEED FOR BURNING OR BURY That s ZERO WASTE! Electricity Other fuels production

26 Waste economy Municipal waste: All costs covered by municipal waste fees (not by taxes) Tariffs decided by each municipal board Non-profit Allowed to be differentiated to encourage source separation for recycling Municipal waste within producers responsibility: Costs covered by a fee added to the price of every product

27 Waste fee Average yearly fee per household 2013: Houses: 250 EUR Flats: 160 EUR Average daily fee per household 1,50 Real

28 Important success factors Waste management is a public service Clear division of roles and responsibilities enable necessary investments Clear national environmental targets showing the direction Long-term regulations and economical steering instruments Co-operation between municipalities Co-operation within municipalites (Waste-, Energy-, Water-, Urban- planning-, etc departements) Collaboration between public and private sectors Focus on communication and public engagement

29 Avfall Sverige s vision Zero waste! Long-term goals until 2020: Decoupling between generated waste and economic growth Strong upward movement in waste hierarchy Economic growth Generated waste BN P

30 Why a recycling/reusing/eco-park? Our introduction concept was: Gothenburgers' new amusement park for reusers and recyclers

31 Drop off what you want to get rid off and buy what you need Inaugurated 5 May 2007 Total area of 30,000 square meters Total cost 4 million euro

32 Eighty percent of the buildings are reused. They have been brought in from other facilities and built up again in the park Construction time : March 2006 to April 2007.

33 The visitors first arrive at the sortingstation Sorting station where all visitors are met by recycling-park staff and invited to donate any of their items that may be suitable for sale in one of the secondhand shops. Most visitors are pleasantly surprised to be offered this opportunity.

34 Rooflift! Entrance Communication Hazardous waste Electronic waste Donated materials

35 Whitewares are left outside the station

36 Stadsmissionen shop here the visitors can choose from a wide range of second-hand products

37 furniture fashion

38 or knick-knacks and household goods

39 Återbruket is for recycling of construction materials.

40 Återbruket for those looking for used construction materials

41 Returhuset creative forces that do exciting things with re-used materials

42 Bike repair at Returhuset

43

44 We play on the heart strings when marketing the ecocycle park It should be a pleasure and easy to Donate Buy second-hand Sort one's waste Understand our system

45 A few facts about the eco-cycle park About: visitors per day Turn over: ,2 milj.euro Create work opportunities for about 25 people very important, green jobs More than 130 guidings from Sweden and more than 50 different countries have visited our Park We, the park and Gothenburg makes a difference Free soil, bag and spade from the city's own composting plant to the young ones!

46 Are we influencing people's behaviour? Many come just to donate. They stop at the sorting station and drive out again, without visiting the recycling centre Because we ask ACTIVELY if the visitor has something to donate, we encourage such behavior and more things are left for reuse. We educate people, learning by doing

47 Zero Waste is more the journey, then the destination! There is no AWAY! It s always someothers backyard!
