From the city of Mölndal, examples of innovative ways of tax setting were shown. Here, a "progressive residual waste tax" has been introduced, with the aim of increasing the sorting of Food waste and packaging and thus reducing the amount of Residual waste from multi-family dwellings. The tariff was introduced in March this year, and its impact will be evaluated in Mölndal's Recycling room digitisation project.
"Level measurement projects, linked to tax setting in different parts of the country, give us an understanding of the effect of the tax on sorting. This then allows us to have sharper dialogues with our politicians about the design of the governance."
"All municipalities should be interested in this, if it can be shown statistically that low rates on combustibles result in more combustibles, it is extremely valuable knowledge", says Andreas Svendsen.
Finally, Bintel presented the overall picture of the SUB100 group Recycling room, now about 500 Recycling room in a dozen municipalities. Here the correlation between the level of environmental management of the tariff and the waste sorting rate was demonstrated. An example of how data can be used to evaluate the tools offered by the sector.
We look forward to seeing you at the next meeting after the summer, where we guarantee new interesting presentations and discussions.
