NordRen AS (NR) is the leading private waste collector in Norway, providing services across the country, NR is built on passion, professionalism and expertise. From small beginnings we have grown to become the leading refuse collection and transportation company in Norway. We provide an efficient, reliable and professional household refuse collection. Serving more than 1 million residents, NR is the largest operator in the Norwegian refuse collection and transportation industry.
Our front line teams empty thousands of rubbish bins every day, transporting the waste within to its final destination safely and efficiently. Each member of our refuse collection team attends training within our ‘Waste Management School’ where they are kept up-to-date on the industries latest legal, professional and health and safety guidelines.
In the past, waste collection services were usually carried out by city staff. Today, the majority of municipalities purchase this service from specialised private businesses. NR has tendered for many of these contracts and has gradually grown to be the largest supplier of waste collection and transportation services across Norway.
Our role is to collect and transport waste for safe disposal. The household sorting, number of bins per home and final destination of waste is decided on by each individual municipality. In many cases, intermunicipal companies manage the processing of waste for a number of different municipalities.
Cardboard, plastic and paper is usually recycled or used for energy production, whilst other rubbish may be used in the production of biogas or compost. Waste that cannot be repurposed is usually incinerated.
By focusing our business efforts on a small but socially essential service, NR has built up a deep understanding of the waste collection and transportation industry. From route planning to logistics and vehicle maintenance to advance driving skills we have the skills and resources to deliver our services in all conditions.
