When you own a business, you are responsible for ensuring that its waste is sorted and disposed of in compliance with existing legislation and regulations.
Recyclable and residual waste
Some business waste is recyclable and must be sorted out and disposed of as such. The utilisation of recycled waste saves resources and thus is environmentally friendly. When the recyclable waste has been sorted out the residual waste must also be disposed of correctly.

Waste administrative fee
Owners of a business located in Copenhagen are required to pay an annual fee to Copenhagen Municipality. The fee covers the municipal expenses for administrating business waste. Certain businesses can obtain exemption from the fee dependent on i.a. business type, number of employees, and financial turnover.
