Company profile

Saubermacher Dienstleistungs AG is an international waste disposal and recycling company with headquartes in Feldkirchen near Graz. The environmental pioneer was founded in 1979 in Eastern Styria. Today, the family business is a competent partner for approx. 1,600 communities and over 40,000 companies, emplying about 3,100 people in Austria, Germany, the Czech Republic, Slovenia, and Hungary. With its participation in REDUX GmbH, European market leader in battery recycling, Saubermacher is further expanding its lead in the international recycling market. With its vision “Zero Waste” the company pursues the guiding principle of leaving no waste at all. The task is to make all materials recyclable. This means processing them at the end of their life cycle in such a way, that ever higher percentage of the source material is recycled and thus led into an (almost infinite) cycle. Due to the increasingly complex market environment, digitalization and automation are also seen as an opportunity for more individual customer service.

„Awarding the Federal coat of arms of Republic of Austria in September 2006, Federal Minister Dr. Martin Bartenstein distinguished Saubermacher Dienstleistungs AG as an “exemplary domestic enterprise”. The Minister of economy also paid tribute to our pioneering efforts in areas of waste disposal and environmental protection as well as to our engagement in transfer of environmental know-how to Central and Eastern Europe. The national coat of arms shows our customers that they can rely on Austria’s leading private waste disposal and recycling company in the long term.”
