Waste management at Skaftárhreppi

Skaftárhreppur is taking part in a pilot project in 2020 where the waste management will be changed. The project is made in co-​operation with The Social ScienceResearch Institute, University of Iceland and ReSource International ehf. The aim of the project is to give an overview of which waste management solutions are most suitable to fulfill the laws and regulations regarding waste handling and disposal, and which are suitable for the inhabitants of the area. The resulting knowledge of the project will be used in order to fulfill the sustainability and recycling goals of the environmental ministry of Iceland and coin a waste management model that can be used in multiple places in Iceland. The project was introduced to the inhabitants of Skaftárhreppur in January 2020. The town meeting had a good turn-​up and we were welcomed by the enthusiastic people of Skaftárhreppur.
