Happy Birthday EL

From pioneer to industry giant: Rieck Entsorgungs-Logistik (EL) is celebrating its 30th anniversary - and continues to grow.

In April 1994, our then smallest Rieck branch in Mülheim a.d. Ruhr enters the waste disposal business with five employees on 700 square meters of hall space. A short time later, it changed its name to Rieck Entsorgungs-Logistik and moved to Neuss in 1999. Today, we offer our customers waste disposal services with a hazardous waste interim storage facility and a wide range of recycling solutions on 40,000 square meters of space and employ 76 people. "The industry is dynamic, and so are we," says Stefan Rieck, Managing Partner of the Rieck Logistics Group. "Whether it's new materials, innovative recycling solutions, legal requirements or social rethinking - we keep our finger on the pulse."

By 2030, 70 percent of packaging waste across the EU is to be recycled.

Recycle instead of disposing

Paper, film and plastics used to be waste, but today they are important raw materials. At the same time, manufacturers are being made more and more responsible in terms of a circular economy. And what does this mean for us? We are continuously expanding our recycling capacities accordingly: Ten years ago, the recycling center opened with its own channel baling plant. Last financial year, we sorted, processed and baled more than 30,000 tons of waste paper for the first time. "This year, we are also putting a polystyrene recycling plant into operation," says Managing Director Daniel Gartmann. It compresses packaging polystyrene - one of the most frequently generated waste materials in the world. The material can then be used as a raw material for the production of new polystyrene, clothing or thermal insulation. We expect to recycle around 16,000 cubic meters in the first year alone.

"We stand for service from a single source - so that our customers can focus on their core business."

Everything from a single source

Our customers don't have to worry about the legal requirements for disposal and recycling: We advise on new developments at an early stage and, as a certified specialist company, ensure that everything runs smoothly.

Another plus point: the Neuss site has its own logistics department, which offers storage facilities as well as national and global logistics solutions. A modern fleet of panel vans, tautliners, special semi-trailers from the coil and Joloda sector as well as swap body vehicles are available for this purpose - naturally with the latest safety standards and Euro norms

"We are developing our logistics department's range of services just as much as our diverse disposal and recycling options," summarizes Stefan Rieck.
