Deposit your waste in the correct container at the recycling centre
NORFORS’ sorting instructions can help you to sort and deposit your waste in the correct containers at the recycling centre.
 
The large number (the so-called fraction number) as well as the type of waste, e.g. “Iron and metal” are indicated on signs next to all containers at the recycling centre. So look for them when you arrive at the recycling centre.

Enjoy – and thanks for sorting your waste!
