Campus Lindholmen – Optimising waste collection

Low-speed electric vehicles in combination with specially designed trailers collect sorted waste fractions and distribute the goods to various recipients.

At the Campus Lindholmen 10 000 people visit an area smaller than one tenth of a square kilometre every day. From a transport terminal, goods and waste from fifteen schools and businesses are being consolidated. Lindholmsleveransen is a transport system for both goods and waste and it was started in 2008. The main purpose is to decrease heavy transports at Campus Lindholmen.

The concept is that all goods for the area is left at a local micro terminal and thereafter it is distributed by an electric minitruck. The vehicle delivers goods to the area and brings back waste. The result is that the number of heavy vehicle movements at Campus Lindholmen has decreased by 80 to 90 per cent.

The next, planned step is to introduce an electric waste truck emptying waste on site, just like a traditional waste truck. This will lead to even less transports compared to today when smaller waste bins are being transported back and forth.
