Besides having a highly qualified team of experts, who are able to advise their customers on all waste management matters, the site also has a good infrastructure. Situated close to the A1 and A61 motorways, it can be reached without having to drive through populated areas. Moreover, the landfill can be extended as and when required. A number of new sections, for example, were opened up in 2020 in line with national quality standards and the quality requirements set out in the latest German Landfill Ordinance.
In line with all rules and regulations: detailed quality checks were carried out while the complex surface sealing system was installed at the landfill. Operations did not begin until the new section had been approved by the supervisory authority
