Waste Management


If a company is certified as an EFB (Entsorgungsfachbetrieb – company specialized in waste disposal), fulfillment of the following requirements placed in a stringent rating system is documented and made traceable for the client: reliability of the service, training of the personnel and compliance with all legal requirements.


  •   The EFB’s voluntary quality review means safety and certainty – for the clients, the waste disposal companies themselves, the public and the environment.
