Waste policy and planning

The world’s growing population presents a challenge for the environment as more people will have to share the planet’s limited resources. Waste policy and planning can be an instrument to prevent valuable resources from ending up in landfills and incineration plants. It also provides a common approach for disposal and waste sorting for citizens and businesses, which increases resource recovery.

In Denmark, the waste hierarchy provides a guiding principle for municipalities’ waste management strategies as priority is given to pre-treatment for reuse, recycling, alternative utilisation such as incineration and finally disposal into landfills.
