Shipments of green-listed waste

a Nordic survey

This project was carried out to provide a better picture of transboundary shipments of green-listed waste involving project countries Denmark, Finland, Norway, and Sweden. The readily available export data for 2014 are presented. The primary effort in the project was devoted to an Annex VII inspection, which was carried out as a desk study. 33 companies were asked to send all their Annex VIIs and related contracts from September-October 2015 to the competent authority of their country. Special focus was given to companies exporting waste beyond the EEA, as were the waste streams consisting of metal scrap, plastics, paper, and cable waste. In addition to the Annex VII inspection and the gathering of national statistics, the project included asking company representatives about their practices and opinions related to green-listed waste shipments, via a Web-based survey.

In addition to the Annex VII inspection and the gathering of national statistics, the project included asking company representatives about their practices and opinions related to green-listed waste shipments, via a Web-based survey. The questionnaire used was created with the Webropol tool in four languages (Danish, Finnish, Norwegian, and Swedish), and companies from the project countries were asked to take part in the survey in February 2016. The request was sent to the companies whose Annex VIIs were checked and also to a larger group, members of certain industry associations. In total, 22 responses were received, seven each from Norway and Sweden, five from Finland, and two from Denmark. One respondent was not based in a project country. The majority of the respondents were from waste treatment, waste trading, or metal-scrap recycling companies (a breakdown is provided in Figure 1). In all, 21 respondents stated that their work involves cross-border shipments of waste. Most of the companies the respondents represented were exporting waste or both exporting and importing it; see Figure 2 for the distribution. The following subsections present the most interesting findings from the survey.
