Cologne. From 1 January 2019 onwards, INTERSEROH Dienstleistungs GmbH will be responsible for the management of workshop waste for Volkswagen OTLG. Volkswagen OTLG supplies some 3,000 service partners from the Volkswagen, Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles, Audi, Seat, Škoda and Porsche brands with original parts, accessories and services throughout Germany. The company, which is part of the Volkswagen Group, also offers a waste management service to its service partner businesses – for which Interseroh is to become responsible as service provider. In the future, the experts from the Cologne-based environmental services provider will be responsible for the collection, transport and storage, as well as the recycling respectively the environmentally friendly recovery, and secure removal of the workshop waste. In addition to packaging waste, that also includes service waste such as car glass or hazardous waste such as service fluids.

“The different types of waste which arise at the workshops require a considerable degree of specialist knowledge surrounding the management and recycling of waste. We have gathered more than ten years of experience in this segment, which enables us to offer secure, efficient and environmentally friendly overall solutions throughout Germany,” explains Ronald Bornée, Division Manager of the Business Unit for Recycling Solutions at Interseroh. “The fact that we have been awarded such a large-scale contract by Volkswagen OTLG for the management of waste from their workshops demonstrates that our customised offering meets the needs of this sector.”

“Both the ‘zero waste’ principle and Interseroh’s price-performance ratio convinced us of the offering of the environmental services provider,” explains Nicole Müller, Manager of the Central Competence Centre for Sustainability Management at Volkswagen OTLG. “Sustainability is becoming increasingly important in every area of industry, including the management of waste from workshops. We are therefore looking forward to developing new ideas together with our new service provider surrounding the management of waste from the workshops that relate to the circular economy and future sustainability.”

As an ALBA Group company, the international recycling specialists, Interseroh develops solutions for the management of waste from workshops which are continuously adapted to the individual requirements of the appropriate businesses and fulfil the latest environmental and quality standards. Some 4,500 workshops throughout Germany now rely on the professional expertise of the environmental services provider, including filling stations, independent garages, as well as manufacturers and importers of cars, commercial vehicles, motorcycles, agricultural vehicles and construction vehicles.
