New developments in environmental policy, ecological requirements as well as the threat of overcommitted disposal facilities of landfills and incineration for household waste and similar materials from commercial collections, require us to make significant reductions in the overall volume of disposable waste.

In addressing the subject of "recycling", it was important to SSI SCHAEFER to develop a cost-effective and environmentally friendly container and collection system, that could be integrated into the household waste disposal system without significant technical or financial investment and which would permit the largest possible quantity of recyclable materials, sorted by type, to be collected.

The objective is to reduce the volume of non-recyclable waste to a minimum.

Here you will find more information on the individual recycled material fractions:
