Are you clear about what to do with your waste?

Switzerland is one of the world's biggest producers of waste per capita. This makes it even more important to ensure that recyclable materials are recycled and everything else is disposed of responsibly. After all, yesterday’s rubbish is today's resource.

The shift in the way we deal with waste is reflected in statutory and administrative regulations. This can be seen in the “Ordinance on the Avoidance and the Disposal of Waste” from 1 January 2016, which has introduced a number of changes to the way in which waste should be managed. There are huge differences in the way different cantons and municipalities enforce these regulations and the market follows its own rules.

We provide guidance in this complex environment and work with you to develop lawful, economical and cutting-edge disposal and recycling solutions for your waste.


Our services for cantons, municipalities and businesses:

  • Developing plans to manage and dispose of various types of waste (municipal waste, construction waste, biological waste, hazardous waste)
  • Monitoring the legality and technical feasibility of disposal and recycling solutions
  • Establishing baselines (such as statistics) for waste planning and management
  • Assessing the appropriateness and environmental sustainability of waste treatment facilities and recycling and disposal systems
