This is BIR 
BIR is Norway’s second largest waste management company and is responsible for waste handling from approximately 320.000 inhabitants in the municipalities owning BIR.    
The company is one of Norway’s leading waste management companies and carries out waste handling in a modern, environmentally correct and cost efficient way. The Company has over 300 employees and has an annual turnover in excess of NOK 667 million.

The following municipalities are the owners of BIR: Askøy, Bergen, Fusa, Kvam, Os, Osterøy, Samnanger, Sund and Vaksdal.

 BIR aims to own and manage companies carrying out the collection, transport and processing of consumer waste, as well as industrial, commercial and hazardous waste.

Our business
BIR is divided into two parts. One part is sole provider for the waste management of private households, while the other competes with other waste management companies in the market.

For the collection and processing of household waste, the monopoly responsibility has been delegated to BIR by its owner municipalities. BIR’s fully owned subsidiary, BIR Privat AS, is set up to carry out these tasks.

The part of BIR’s operation exposed to market competition, is allocated to other group subsidiaries: BIR Bedrift AS, BIR Transport AS, BIR Avfallsenergi AS, BIR Nett AS, Mjelstad Miljø AS and TH Paulsen AS. BIR also owns 49% of BKK Varme AS which produces and sells district heating, using waste energy from BIR’s incineration plant.

Making waste valuable
waste management is based on both home collection and delivery arrangements. Households have separate bins or containers at home. In addition, residents in BIRs municipalities can use a variety of return points for waste such as glass and metal.  They can also use recycling stations to deliver their electric-, hazardous- and bulky waste.

It is important to sort the waste correctly at home so all the waste  can be recycled into new products or energy.
