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.
Sysav, Sydskånes avfallsaktiebolag, and its two wholly-owned subsidiaries, Sysav Industri AB and Sysav Utveckling AB, are owned by 14 municipalities in southern Skåne: Burlöv, Kävlinge, Lomma, Lund, Malmö, Simrishamn, Sjöbo, Skurup, Staffanstorp, Svedala, Tomelilla, Trelleborg, Vellinge and Ystad.
The parent company’s operations encompass the management and treatment of household waste collected in Sysav’s owner municipalities.
