The best drinking water comes straight from the tap

IVAR supplies drinking water to all the municipal owners. Our drinking water is subject to the most stringent requirements related to the quality of hygienic water.

We treat waste water

IVAR receives and treats waste water from the ownership municipalities. Our goal is to ensure that the discharge of waste water does not harm rivers and sea areas and to ensure re-circulating of dry sludge from the treatment facilities.

We create value from what you throw away

IVAR receives and ensures further treatment of waste from the collection systems in the ownership municipalities. We also own and run several recycling stations.

Use transparent waste bags

It is forbidden to use black/colored bags at IVAR's recycling stations. If you choose to use waste bags, you have to use transparent waste bags.

Together with the residual waste that used to be delivered in black waste bags, we often found electrical waste, hazardous waste, glass and metal. To avoid this, you have to use transparent waste bags. (Electrical and hazardous waste can be delivered FREE to our recycling stations).

Residual waste is what is left when everything that can be recycled is sorted out. Thank you for your contribution!

Transparent plastic bags can be purchased at Forus Recycling Station for NOK 30.
