As complex as this process is, you don't have to take care of it. We will help you get rid of your waste fast and cheap.

Find out what kinds of waste we accept below:

Scrap wood AI - A III
Altholz A I - A III

The waste regulations Altholzverordnung (AltholzV) regarding the recycling of scrap wood state, that the material needs to be split  into categories, defined as A I to A IV, depending on the further use.

Category A I: natural or only mechanically processed wood, that was not contaminated more than "insignificantly" by foreign substances.

Category A II: glued, painted, coated, varnished or differently processed wood without organohalogen compounds in their coat and without wood preservatives

Category A III: wood with organohalogen compounds in their coat without wood preservatives

Scrap woods in category A I to A III are defined as non-hazardous waste, while scrap wood belonging to category A IV, is defined as hazardous waste.

Ask us
Scrap wood A IV
AltholzAIV

The waste regulations Altholzverordnung (AltholzV) regarding the recycling of scrap wood state, that the material needs to be splitted into categories, defined as A I to A IV and PCB-scrap wood, depending on the further use.

Category A IV: wood treated with wood preservatives such as railway sleepers, poles, hop poles, vineyard poles as well as other scrap wood that does not fit category A I - A III due to their load of pollution, except PCB-scrap wood.

PCB-scrap wood: wood, that is defined as PBC in the sense of the PCB/PCT waste regulations and needs to be disposed by their regulations, especially isolation- and noise protection boards that were treated with substances including polychlorinated biphenyls.

Scrap wood of the category A IV is categorized as hazardous waste. It can still be delivered to our recycling centers and the certification of disposal takes place by the regulations of the Nachweisverordnung (NachweisV).

Ask us
Scrap paper
Altpapier

Scrap paper is a valuable resource since it reduces the use of fresh wood in the production of paper - this way we can help conserve our environment. About 67% of the paper produced in Germany is made from recycled paper, especially less valuable kinds such as wrapping material, cardboard, hygiene paper or newspaper. Printing companies often have big amounts of scrap paper and it often occurs as wrapping material. Depending on the quality and the purpose of reuse, it is categorized. You are welcome to deliver scrap paper and cardboard to our recycling centers and in case you have bigger amounts, we are happy to help you with a suitiable container or a compressing container.

Ask us

We accept scrap tires in every form at our recycling centers. No matter if they are with or without rims or if you only have one or all four of them. In case you have bigger amounts we are happy to help you with a suitable container.

Ask us
Aluminum
Aluminium

Aluminum is a very valuable material in the waste cycle, since the production of new aluminum costs a high amount of energy. When recycling aluminum, only 5% of the energy is needed, that would have to be used when it would be produced from bauxite. The recycling rate of aluminum is at about 66% in Europe. We accept aluminum with iron adhesions (Alu Geschirr), aluminum sheets with color, plain aluminum, aluminum profiles as well as aluminum-dross-mixtures from production and crafts. We pay the current marked price. In case you have bigger amounts, we are happy to help you with a suitable container.

Ask us
File destrucion
Aktenvernichtung

When disposing documents, you need to decide how sensible the information included is. Depending on that, there are different options of disposal.  If the files are not subject to data protection, you can deliver them directly to our recycling center. Confidential data needs to be categorized by your private commissioner into one of the three protection classes defined by DIN 66399. Depending on the protection class, there are seven protection levels, defining the productivity of the data. Usually class 1 or 2 is enough for normal commercial data. In case you have sensible data or hard drives to destruct, we are happy to help you with a suitable safety container. In case you have a need for regular destruction of documents, we are happy to help you with an according container permanently with a regular emptying cycle.
