Over the course of the last 40-plus years, Iceland’s recycling and waste management system has drastically changed. Since open-pit burning was the country’s main source of waste disposal, Iceland’s goal to decrease the amount of waste produced is becoming more and more true. With various projects to diminish waste, companies like SORPA and the Environment Agency of Iceland are focusing on waste prevention methods as well as keeping the community aware of how to better the waste management system.
