Case study – Oslo Airport

There is a high density of the waste containers that have been put out at Oslo Airport, and everything has been arranged for travelers to easily sort their waste at source, even if it is very hectic.

Recycling systems for 32 million passengers at Oslo Airport

In April 2017, the new wing at OSL Gardermoen opened. With a capacity to receive 32 million passengers annually, there is a lot of waste. Røros Produkter AS has supplied Konsi source sorting containers for easier waste management at the airport.

A winner

“Konsis” is the waste container you see most in the new departures hall. It received the price for good design in 2006, and won the Patent Council’s unceremonious audience award in 2013. It is solid waste furniture that helps with an even better source sorting rate at OSL.

There is a high density of the waste containers that have been put out at Oslo Airport and everything has been arranged for travelers to easily sort their waste at source, even if it is very hectic. This is no coincidence, when Røros Produkter delivered the first waste containers to OSL already in 2006, and it was a great success when source sorting was introduced.

Upgrading The new arrivals hall has timely improvements and more novelties are on the way for testing. Older solutions that already exist at Avinor’s airports can be easily upgraded by replacing parts so that they appear as new.
