Waste management – free advice from SuperDrecksKëscht®

The situation in the agricultural sector was for a long time such that it remained possible to deal with, and therefore minimise, waste with the use of closed-circuit handling procedures. But this sector has now likewise been affected by the wider blight of plastics and packaging, and materials such as scrap metal, electrical components, light bulbs or waste lubricants generated by the maintenance of buildings and machinery. The amounts involved often far exceed levels that are considered normal for a rural household.

Agricultural operations with queries regarding such issues can now turn to SuperDrecksKëscht®. The SuperDrecksKëscht® fir Betriber is a free service offered by Luxembourg’s Ministry of the Environment, Climate and Sustainable Development in cooperation with the Chambre des Métiers (a craft trade association) and the Chamber of Commerce. Its primordial role is the provision of a free consultation service. Proper waste disposal normally entails going beyond existing structures. The SuperDrecksKëscht® also offers a specialist waste-disposal service for particular problem-cases such as used lubricants.
