Recycling, services, water: REMONDIS offers a wide range of services in Poland. The company has around 50 business locations across the country. Many of its operations are run as public private partnerships, i.e. in collaboration with local authorities.
One of the main factors behind the company’s success is its large number of diverse recycling facilities. REMONDIS has opened five new plants at various Polish towns over the last three years alone: the existing mechanical treatment plants in Bydgoszcz, Opole and Szczecin were extended to include composting plants so that they have now been given the status of an integrated mechanical biological treatment (MBT) facility. Moreover, a composting plant was commissioned in Tarnowskie Góry, an additional RDF plant was built in Szczecin and a new recycling centre began operations in Gliwice, which includes one of the largest and most modern MBT facilities in the south of Poland.

Priority is now being put on sorting and recycling in Poland as well
This centre now not only has more ways to treat municipal waste but is also able to recover greater quantities of recyclable materials. In addition to this, REMONDIS has extended its presence in the south west of Poland: its acquisition of the van Gansewinkel Group’s Polish operations and of Becker Polska Sp. z o. o. means it now has more branches and more work in the Lower Silesian, Lesser Poland, Silesian and Opole Voivodeships.
“REMONDIS has been operating in Poland for more than 24 years now and its aim is, as always, to extend its network of facilities to treat residual materials.”
Dr Marek Gebski, Managing Director of REMONDIS Sp. z o.o.
Poland is making great efforts to decrease the volume of waste being taken to landfill. Setting up a suitable infrastructure, however, is essential if the country is to grow its material recycling rates. REMONDIS’ close-knit network of plants helps provide a systematic solution to this problem and is able to take over specialist tasks. It is, therefore, helping to create the basis that the country needs to be able to operate a modern recycling sector and achieve its environmental targets.
Another advantage offered by this ever increasing network of plants is that they can now collaborate with one another. This creates synergies and economies of scale that not only benefit the environment but also enable the plants to be run even more effectively.
