Can challenges be turned into opportunities?
A quick glance at the DACH region would lead to the conclusion that everything looks bright. The latest figures put Germany and Austria first and second respectively in recycling municipal waste among the 27 EU member states.

circular economy. But there’s a deeper story here. Even in the best of times, waste & recycling players have to maneuver around tight margins. Recyclers especially walk a tightrope, operating in what has always been a volatile climate.
