Every day of the year we relieve the inhabitants and companies of the five capital municipalities Dragør, Frederiksberg, Hvidovre, Copenhagen and Tårnby of their waste and supply heat and electricity to their households in return. In total this amounts to 435,000 tons of waste which is converted into electricity and district heating supplying approximately 140,000 households.
Amager Resource Centre (ARC) has produced district heating since 1970 and electricity since 1990. In 1991 we began operating recycling stations in the capital area. Every year close to a million customers hand in garden waste, used construction materials, and other kinds of waste for recycling along with hazardous waste which we make sure is treated in an eco-correct manner.
ARC ensures optimal use of the resources contained in the waste in a manner that considers the environment. We continuously aim at improving the environmental considerations as regards to the processing of the capital’s waste.
