In line with the development of infection in the municipalities we work in, have ReMidt introduced several measures to keep employees and customers healthy. We have regular opening hours at our recycling stations, but let in a limited number at the same time in the area. How many there are depends on the size of the recycling station. In most places you will be met by one of our operating operators at the gate.

Today's status is as follows:

  • We demand that it be kept two meters away from both employees and other customers. Be patient if there are several at the same container.
  • In line with the municipalities' guidelines, we have introduced an order for the use of bandages at the recycling stations at Hitra and Frøya. There are also requirements for the use of bandages elsewhere, if you can not keep a sufficient distance to other people.
  • Where there are re-use stalls, these are closed for the time being. In the second-hand shop at Melhus, there is a limited number of simultaneous customers and bandages.
  • The customer center and other administration buildings are closed for visits. Should you get in touch with us, we recommend that you do so via phone, email or our contact form. As a customer, you can experience longer response times than normal.
  • Children and dogs must stay in the car, if you visit one of our recycling stations. We further recommend that only one person get out of the car inside the facility.
  • We do not accept school classes or other groups to the recycling station until further notice.
  • Are you in quarantine? Then you should not deliver waste at our recycling stations. The same applies if you have symptoms of infection that have not been clarified. Help us keep our employees healthy.



The renovators who collect the waste at your home are part of the front line that makes a formidable effort to keep our society going during this crisis. Every day they will empty thousands of garbage cans from those who are healthy, those who are quarantined, and from those who are sick.

Here's how to make the job of our renovators as simple and safe as possible:

• Disinfect or wash the handle on the can the day before the waste is collected. This is especially important where there is a neighboring division or common containers.
• Make sure the bag is securely fastened before throwing it in the can.
• Make sure that the waste is in the container and not on the outside. Do not place waste bags on top of or next to overflowing cans. The lid must be on.
• Sort as much as possible. If you are not sure where to go, check sorter.no. Used bandages should always be disposed of with residual waste.


Our operating operators have been told to keep distance from customers in line with advice from the health authorities. We hope you as a customer with us think the same way and help to not spread infection.
