The city of Zwolle values circularity and aims to become the fourth most circular city in the Netherlands, after Venlo, Rotterdam and Amsterdam. Circularity requires reducing, reusing and recycling. One of the challenges concerning circularity regards waste streams. Waste streams need to be reduced and repositioned. Especially in neighbourhoods with many blocks of flats, waste separation requires more attention. Currently, households have the possibility of separating plastic, paper, glass and residual waste, but not organic waste. This is bundled together with residual waste, which is where the problem lies. At this moment, it is impossible to fully separate organic waste from residual waste, which makes repositioning its value extremely difficult. As Zwolle wants to reuse as many raw materials as possible to come as close to zero residual waste as possible, it is important to find a way to separate the organic waste and reuse the valuable materials.
