Where does mixed waste go?

Non-separated waste is mostly disposed of in waste-to-energy plants that produce electricity and heat for district heating systems; only a small amount goes to landfills.

Hera’s target is to lower the percentage of municipal waste sent to landfills even further, in keeping with EU directives that make landfills the waste disposal method of last resort. In 2002, this percentage was 49% of the total. By 2018, it has already dropped to 4.5%.
