Final stop: Wiederkehr Recycling

The points were set for the last time for this rail wagon – and they took it right into the middle of our recycling plant in Waltenschwil. The dismantling of this powerful and bulky vehicle represents yet another impressive recycling project for Wiederkehr, especially considering the size of the object being worked on. Our aim is the same as with every job that we handle: to efficiently dismantle the vehicle that once rattled reliably along the tracks into small pieces ready for recycling. There is a wide variety of materials to be processed. Here is an overview of the recyclables:

100% electricity from hydropower – sustainable, cost-effective, locally produced

Since 1 January 2021, the Wiederkehr Group has sourced the electricity for its Waltenschwil and Schwarzenbach sites exclusively from hydropower. This was a logical decision, made for the benefit of the environment. The arguments for hydropower include not only its simple renewability, but also low emissions of greenhouse gases and highly efficient conversion into electrical energy with comparatively low use of resources. You can find further information on how we put sustainability into practice at the Wiederkehr Group here

Ship ahoy!

You thought it was only aluminium cans, scrapped cars and dumped fridges that found their way to us? Far from it. We go a whole lot bigger than that. As part of a specialist disposal service, we dismantle transport giants like ships or even trains. We carry out extraordinary projects like these at our site in Waltenschwil. Our powerful infrastructure transforms immense objects into small recyclable parts. The huge range within recycling is what makes the Wiederkehr Group so unique and our work so fascinating and sustainable. Here is an overview of the raw materials we work with on a day-to-day basis:
