This report assesses the environmental impacts of incineration with energy recovery and composting as two options for the disposal of garden waste in Denmark. By analyzing literature and speaking with experts in the field of waste management a recommendation was formed as to the most ecologically friendly plan for garden waste management. This study concludes that in most instances, incineration proves to be more environmentally friendly. Exceptions depend on the specific characteristics and operation of individual incineration plants.
