COMMON SIGN SYSTEM

LIKE SIGNS EVERYWHERE MAKE IT EASY TO DO RIGHT

Previously, there has been no common signage system for waste in Sweden. Different systems and symbols in different places have made it confusing and difficult to sort correctly. On 1 July 2020, Avfall Sverige therefore launched a new joint signage system with uniform symbols for all types of waste sorting. The better we become at sorting, the easier it will be to take care of the waste in a good way. 

The system is intended to be used by producers, at collection close to real estate, at recycling stations, recycling centers, in rubbish bins, in rubbish bins and when collecting in the city. The goal is a more sustainable society where everyone can easily sort their waste and jointly take responsibility for our environment. Better conditions for sorting and recycling provide great environmental benefits and should be an obvious contribution to a sustainable society. Through clarity and patience, we will succeed even better with the sorting.

The new signs are available for all of Sweden's municipalities and producers here with us at atervinningsskyltar.se. Click on to the sign shop or contact us for custom signs

NORDIC COOPERATION

The new system has been developed in collaboration with Avfall Sverige's sister organizations in the Nordic countries. The system, which has been developed in Denmark, has proven to work very well and now the work is continuing to get the whole of the Nordic region to use a common system to increase recycling and create greater opportunities for a circular economy.
