Recycling and sustainability

It is easy to manage your waste in Lindholmshamnen. Every milk packet, newspaper and yoghurt tub you put in for recycling saves material and energy and reduces the carbon dioxide emissions.

• Everyone may not always be able to sort all waste. Start with the most important – hazardous waste – that must be separated, for example light bulbs, batteries, glue, paint, nail polish and spray bottles.

• Buy second-hand or change with a friend.

• Tea light holders take very little space to collect but save a lot of energy when they are recycled.

• Pack small paper packages in larger ones.

• Let organic waste drain properly before putting it into the collection.
