Throughout the Hannover region aha (Zweckverband Abfallwirtschaft Region Hannover) is the public provider of waste disposal services. Chiefly, this involves organising and carrying out the collection of waste, recyclable materials and harmful substances as well as treating and disposing of waste including marketing raw materials and recyclables obtained in the process such as greenwaste compost. As a reliable waste industry player that rigorously complies with relevant legislation, aha lays a crucial foundation for the quality of everyday life.
The service is additionally responsible for cleaning streets, pedestrian crossings, cycle paths and roadside verges in the municipal area. It also helps keep roads safe in winter by providing gritting and snow clearance services.
The main objectives of the Region Hannover authority's waste management concept are waste prevention (the top priority), utilisation of both waste materials and energy from them, and environmentally sound disposal of residual waste. In what follows, various projects illustrate what is being done to achieve these goals; these initiatives aim to avoid waste and improve the separate collection of recyclables in collaboration with partners involved in the region's integrated waste advisory service.
