Münster is not only known as the bicycle capital of Germany, but is also a young, green and ambitious city of science and lifestyle. The local waste management company, Abfallwirtschaftsbetriebe Münster (AWM), is responsible for waste disposal and cleaning for the benefit of the city’s 315,000 inhabitants. Already since 2003, the milestone has been reached that no more untreated waste is disposed of in landfills. Separation of biowaste dates back to the early 1990s. Since then, biowaste has been processed into compost and converted to energy through anaerobic digestion processes. This long tradition of circular thinking is just one indication among many of the company’s ability to innovate and its willingness to break new ground. The broad commitment to the dissemination of information and education of the population in the matter of waste separation are also ambitious steps taken by AWM.
