The importance of recycling

Managing and finding the ideal solution for recycling industrial waste materials, whether or not they are hazardous, constitutes the veritable core business of GLARECO.

“Lansink’s Ladder”, a waste-management hierarchy devised by Dutch politician Ad Lansink, gives recycling a central place, preceding the last stages of elimination by landfill or incineration.

There is a lot at stake: the climate and environment, of course, but also economic and business issues make recycling a major asset in facing the challenges on which our future depends.

The aim to "Zero waste" affects citizens just as much as the industrialists who are having to adopt new practices in order to achieve the targets. GLARECO is introducing itself as a major player in this socially essential restructuring.
