The Sysav Concept

Sysav consider waste to be a resource that should, as far as possible, be reused and recycled.

Sysav applies an eco-cycle perspective and the operations are based on know-how and expertise, and combine several methods in order to treat each type of waste in the most environment-friendly and sustainable way possible.

Waste is a resource and should, as far as possible, be reused and recycled. Sysav strongly encourages waste sorting at the source. The waste is either reused, recycled into new materials or energy or biologically treated. Only a very small fraction is landfilled.

During a study visit you will get an introduction to Sysav’s business and operations, an understanding of the waste management system in Sweden as well as the role of waste in a sustainable society.

A study visit starts with a lecture followed by a guided tour by foot in the waste-to-energy plant, or a guided tour of our waste site Spillepeng.
Kindly note that for a tour of the waste site you need to have access to a coach.

We welcome groups of 10 to 50 delegates. Should time allow, we accept groups of less than 10 participants.

At times it is also possible to visit the pre-treatment plant for food waste, the facility for hazardous waste or a recycling centre. However, this depends on the activities and workload on the given day.

The Communication Officers will introduce you to the waste management system in Sweden, and explain Sysav's operations, but also talk about how waste is related to the global environment and sustainable development.

Please note that the tour in the waste-to-energy plant involves heights, steep stairs and at times foul odour.
