Waste management officer and the Commercial Wastes Ordinance

Full compliance in commercial waste management

Germany’s new Commercial Wastes Ordinance entered into force on 1 August 2017. This aims to raise recovery rates for commercial waste and so to boost recycling. Both for municipal waste and construction and demolition waste, there are additional obligations with regard to the separate collection of various waste types. Comprehensive documentation is also required. Traders must verify and document waste management pathways for packaging, waste electrical and electronic equipment and batteries with the aid of a waste management officer.

We are pleased to assist with our expertise:

  • Provision by Interseroh of an external waste management officer in accordance with the Waste Management Officers Ordinance or of online training for employees
  • Documentation of waste streams in accordance with the Commercial Wastes Ordinance
