Our members are responsible for the treatment of more than 95 percent of all household waste in Norway, and represent public services and private companies. We offer training and guidance, ensure clear policies and constructive political dialogue, and initiate research and development projects to build industry capacity.

Norwegian Waste Management and Recycling Association was formed in 1986 with the aim of coordinating and maintaining municipal interests and inter-municipal cooperation in the waste management sector. Since then, Norwegian Waste Management and Recycling Association has remained a competitive actor in a rapidly changing industry, and remains a nationwide resource for public services and private companies alike. 

Activities
•Annual Conference: Each year we incite new ideas by gathering waste industry officials, quality assurance companies, technological institutes, environmental officers, and political leaders in our Waste Management Conference.
•Knowledge: Norwegian Waste Management and Recycling Association works continually to ensure best practices by offering courses and seminars throughout the year. Topics include hazardous waste management, responsible deposition, and promoting women leadership.
•Research and Development: With new challenges come great opportunities. We initiate research to better treat an increasingly complex stream of waste, bringing us closer to a circular economy.
•Mapping waste sector operations: Norwegian Waste Management and Recycling Association systematically compares technology and processes in the Norwegian waste companies every other year. Our benchmark analysis has become an important tool in determining the status, best practices, and projections for the sector.
