Our mission - WEV

One of WEV main goals is to operate plants for the recycling and disposal of both private and industrial municipal waste. WEV activities are based on the guidelines of the Joint Service Management Union in Westsachsen, which acts as an association for both the Leipzig district and city, putting into effect the waste management concepts.

The Zentraldeponie Cröbern Betriebs-GmbH, as legal predecessor of WEV, was founded with the aim of operating the landfills in Leipzig Seehausen, Groitzsch-Wischstauden and Cröbern. After partial privatisation, Cröbern MBA was added in 2005, in order to guarantee the safety of household and bulky waste disposal after the amendment of the law governing waste dumps.

WEV makes it possible for the ZAW to fulfil the municipal obligation regarding the disposal of household and bulky waste. WEV carries out long-term post-closure care for the landfills and in addition it takes care of the safety of waste disposal - in the interest of all citizens.
