The task consists of dealing with all the waste in an environmentally correct manner. The primary aim is to reduce the total amounts of waste.

We also operates five waste stations where several now are transfer stations. An active landfill is at Gryta in Västerås. By the unit Gas, we can produce biogas and biofertilizer.
