Heftingsdalen shipping area
At the entrance to the plant, which covers more than 15 hectares, a sign announces:“Compost, bark and wood shavings for sale”. Other waste is separated, packed and redirected
to logistics centres elsewhere in Norway and Sweden. Jens Christian Fjelldal, the head of the plant, explains that they sell a range of more than 200 recycled materials to
buyers in Europe and even South America and Asia. The recycling activity pays its way, enabling the three localities to cover the full cost of waste management. The plant employs about 30 people and makes a tiny profit of about €500 000.
