    Key demands included in waste management law amendment

    The monopoly on the Austrian packaging disposal market is coming to an end. On Tuesday, the Council of Ministers passed the long-awaited amendment to the waste management law (AWG).

    Interseroh has its approval withdrawn in Austria

    It was announced today that Interseroh Austria GmbH is no longer entitled to operate as a collection and recycling system for commercial packaging in Austria.

  • Vienna, 12.03.2013 - Delivering food for a good cause: Reclay UFH lends valuable support to the Wiener Tafel food bank

    For the past year, a spirit of “waste not want not” has prevailed at Vienna’s “Naschmarkt”, the largest and most traditional market in the Austrian capital. Rather than disposing of fresh, unspoilt food that can no longer be sold, it is collected and distributed to people in need. This joint project is undertaken by Wiener Tafel, the market stand operators, the IG Naschmarkt association and the city market authorities. Reclay UFH has also been putting its weight behind this initiative since the beginning of this year.

  • Vienna, 18.01.2013 - RECLAY UFH: Market liberalisation lowers costs for general public

Only the restraining order against the discrediting letters sent by ARA to our customers was rejected.”
