SASE gGmbH officially presented the 3rd volume of its self-published series of books on urban environmental protection at this year’s IFAT, the world’s leading trade fair for water, sewage, waste and raw materials management.
Entitled ‘Entsorgungssicherheit und Kreislaufwirtschaft’ [Reliable waste management & the recycling sector], volume three of SASE’s series of publications looks at the period between 1975 and 2000. Focus here is on the successful efforts made by private sector waste management companies to set up reliable waste management services as well as to create a recycling industry – something that was being called for by politicians and society as a whole.
Contributions made by a number of well-known authors, who themselves played a decisive role in shaping the waste management sector during these 20 to 30 years, allow the readers to gain an insight into how the recycling industry was set up and developed. Moreover, people from within the industry provide interesting details on the importance of legislation and how the laws impacted on the whole of the recycling sector.
Previously unpublished material – such as the development of town cleaning services in East Berlin from 1945 to the reunification of Germany, the history of the hazardous waste disposal plant in Bramsche-Achmer or on the role of the BDE and the entrepreneurs shaping this association such as Gustav-Dieter Edelhoff and Norbert Rethmann – help to shed light on the current situation faced by private and public sector waste management businesses.
Together, SASE’s series of publications on urban environmental protection (currently comprising three volumes) documents the activities of the whole of the waste management sector between 1900 and 2000 – from the towns developing their city cleaning activities, to the setting up of a waste management industry, all the way through to the creation of a recycling sector. The SASE publications aim to provide a summary of the waste management and recycling sectors, showing how they have developed over the years. The many illustrations help readers to visualise this development.
A must-read for all those working in the recycling sector: Volume 3 of SASE’s series of publication is now on sale
