Ongoing growth and development: the company continues to remain true to its motto – as can be seen in Sweden. Once a market that saw the business specialising in the collection and recycling of packaging material, REMONDIS is now also in charge of carrying out kerbside collections of household waste on behalf of local authorities as well as collecting commercial and industrial waste from its business clients.
Since the beginning of October, for example, REMONDIS has been responsible for collecting old glass in Stockholm, Västra Götaland and Värmland. Swedish Glass Recycling (Svensk Glasåtervinning / SGÅ) recently extended its long-standing contract to cover these regions as well. As a result, the recycling specialists will collect around 110,000 tonnes of glass each year – approximately 60 percent of the volume of old glass generated throughout Sweden.
110,000 tonnes of glass will be collected by REMONDIS in the future – approx. 60% of the total volume generated in Sweden
Östhammar, a coastal district situated 100km north of Stockholm, will also be benefiting from REMONDIS’ years of know-how and expertise in the future. The family-run firm will be in charge of collecting organic and residual waste from this region from 2021 onwards.
REMONDIS, which already provides numerous key services in Sweden, has now taken on a particularly challenging task: carrying out kerbside collections of household waste and collecting and sorting hazardous waste on the Island of Orust. The third-biggest island in Sweden, it is home to around 15,000 local inhabitants and welcomes an additional 15,000 tourists every summer. The special feature of this contract? Some of the households are located on other smaller groups of islands that are not connected by road to the main island. REMONDIS will, therefore, have to use a ship to organise the collection of these recyclables – yet another course is being adopted. The contract begins in February 2021.
