Hi! The English site is only a beta for now and still has many errors (especially in names and locations).
We are working hard to fix them and making more content available than ever before so expect constant updates.
Let's do our part to keep our environment clean! The role of the Reykjavík City Waste Collection Department is to collect waste from homes in Reykjavík. You can choose the most suitable bins for your home, and thus choose the level of service that works for you.
The bins will be replaced once implementation begins and residents will not need to take any action in this respect. For most households, there will be little change in the number of bins as many households already sort plastic and paper. The biggest change is that all households will get a bin for food scraps. In some cases, bins will be replaced with double bins.
There are different rules for waste collection in multi-family dwellings and single-family dwellings. This is because changes in the number and types of bins in a multi-family residence affect the fees residents pay for garbage collection.
When we contribute and sort correctly, we are helping to ensure that we can continue to recycle and reuse what is no longer useful to us. Are you throwing your waste in the right bin?
It is important that waste collectors get to waste bins safely and unhindered. It not only saves time during unloading, it also affects the number of accidents, worker health, and ensures a better and cheaper service for your home. Are your bins easily accessible?
It is cheaper for you to throw away less and sort more! If there are changes in the number of waste containers, or the frequency of unloading, the change in fees is based on the week in which the change is requested.

Due to infection control measures, household waste must be properly stored. The City of Reykjavík notes that all mixed waste should be contained in bags to prevent workers from being infected. Bins must not be overfilled and must be kept closed so that to workers do not come into contact with waste during unloading, and the waste does not fall out of containers. We would like to remind residents about SORPA’s drop-off centers and recycling centers.
