Requirements for oil and chemical binding agents

The recycling and waste management legislation (German Waste Avoidance, Recovery and Disposal Act) has been effective since October 7, 1996, and has significantly changed waste legislation in Germany.  As a result, in future all waste must be classified and treated in the following order as regards priority and significance:

  • Waste must be avoided - if this is not possible,
  • Waste must be used - if this is not possible,
  • Waste must be disposed of.
