Sar - A global waste management partner





Who are we?

SAR is a top-tier, global waste management partner and service provider.

Our extensive presence enables us to process large volumes of waste with short lead times, and our flexibility allows us to offer ad-hoc solutions for our clients.

We offer customers a total solution for Waste Chain Management (WCM®) for the treatment and handling of all types of waste. We turn waste in to reusable resources, creating a circular economy which is in line with UN goal #12 "Responsible Consumption and production".


Sustainability  Management

'The green transition'

The world is going through a transition towards a greener and more environmentally sustainable society. As a provider of Waste Chain Management services to our customers, SAR takes our responsibility very seriously to contribute to this transition.

We aim to ensure that waste management is carried out safely throughout the value chain: from the waste being produced by the customer, to being managed by us in SAR - to its final disposal.

We will prioritise sustainability in all the choices we make. This applies to both procurement, chemicals, equipment, energy consumption and carriers, emissions, and waste. We shall ensure the best possible use of resources and contribute to a minimal environmental impact, both internally and with our customers and partners.

Located near the customers

We are strategically located along the Norwegian coast from Stavanger in the south to Hammerfest in the north. Our customers range from the private and the public sector to the oil and gas industry, both onshore and offshore. Experiences gained over a decade of serving the Norwegian waste marked has provided us with a solid foundation for continuous expansion, development and investment, also in our International Operations.


Turning waste to value

Being among Norway’s leading providers of waste handling services, SAR AS dedicates a significant amount of time, energy and resources to ensure we stay on top of our game, regarding both technologies and service scope. As a result, the list of products and services offered to our clients and partners continues to grow.

We always employ the Best Available Technology (BAT) and Best Environmental Practice (BEP).

A vital part of our operations is offering our clients training and counselling to minimize waste and efficiently make decisions on how waste should be sorted and handled.

Every aspect well covered

Our mission is more important then ever

Turning waste to value

SAR vision and values








One team shaping the future of safe, circular waste solutions.

A journey of adventures

When SAR first started operations back in 1987, our range and scope were limited.

Some 30 years later, our recycling and recovery specialists now offer a full range of services, commonly trademarked under our Waste Chain Management (WCM®) brand.

We focus primarily on hazardous waste fractions and drilling waste from the petroleum industry, and our extensive presence and experience enables us to offer counseling, handling and processing at our own facilities.
