Dear readers, for more than 40 years there has been a waste legislation in Germany. In each decade, at least one landmark decision was made that decisively advanced the development of waste management away from landfills and toward more recycling. Whether it's the Landfill Ordinance, the introduction of separate household collection of packaging waste, or the ban on landfill through the Technical Instruction on Municipal Waste, or TaSi for short, which is also perceived internationally as groundbreaking and exemplary – these have always been courageous decisions on the part of politicians, which have been put into practice primarily by private, but also by municipal, waste management companies with high investments. Now it is again. Germany is at a crossroads in terms of sustainability. The draft of a new recyclables law, which the Bundesrat has commissioned the German government to draft by the end of the year, offers a unique opportunity to catapult recycling in this country into a new dimension. The potential of waste as a source of raw materials is well known. According to the INFA report, up to 95 kilograms of additional recyclables per inhabitant per year can be recovered. But the signals from the Federal Ministry of the Environment are not very encouraging. Here, people are obviously thinking about making do with the conversion of the good old yellow garbage can into a recycling garbage can for packaging and non-packaging of similar materials, which was decided on a long time ago, and are calculating with just five additional kilograms of recyclable material per inhabitant per year. At REMONDIS, we believe that even this is illusory, based on our own experience of collecting, sorting and recycling recyclable materials, as most of the non-packaging material that is similar to material already ends up in the yellow garbage can as "intelligent waste". If we restrict ourselves to this, a new law on recyclable materials would be largely ineffective. Our appeal to politicians is therefore: Be courageous and visionary. Seize the unique opportunity and set significantly more ambitious collection and recycling quotas. This is the only way Germany can safeguard its raw materials-. Fully exploiting the potential for climate protection.

Asia is still at the beginning of the development towards more sustainability in water and recycling management. Especially the area of material recycling of waste has been neglected for a long time. Could barely keep up with the continent's exponential growth.

Singapore is now tackling the issue more consistently. The construction of a new plant for the processing of slag from waste incineration with simultaneous recovery of ferrous and non-ferrous metals is the latest project of the National Environment Agency NEA, for whose realization and operation REMEX is responsible. This shows once again that Singapore is playing a pioneering role and setting an example for other densely populated regions in Asia.

Here in Germany, REMONDIS is continuing on the path of good cooperation with its municipal partners. In the district of Osnabrück, the newly founded AWIGO Logistik GmbH, the latest public-private partnership between the district and REMONDIS' Regional Company North, is now getting off the ground.
