South Tyrolean delegation explored Ischgl's recycling center

Symposium on the future of waste management

  • Municipalities

  • Participants


The fully digitalized recycling center in Ischgl is arousing great interest beyond Tyrol's borders. A prominent South Tyrolean delegation from the Burggrafenamt district community was recently impressed by the most modern recycling center in Europe.

More than 60 representatives from municipalities from the Burggrafenamt district community were welcomed to Paznaun on October 20th. The group with district community president Luis Kröll was invited to a symposium with the focus on “The future of waste management”. The fact that this meeting is taking place in a tourism metropolis like Ischgl is due to the innovative spirit in the Landeck district and the pioneering role of the community. Since it opened just over a year ago, Ischgl has been considered the location of the most modern recycling center in Europe. By using modern technologies, the recycling center at the prominent winter sports destination operates independently of time and personnel. Residents can dispose their waste without any restricted opening hours. All processes, from entry to waste collection to data transfer to an app, are fully digital.

Impressive waste disposal model

Ischgl's mayor Werner Kurz clearly explained how the more extensive opening hours simplify waste disposal and make it less stressful overall. The system was realized by the Landecker waste management expert group, the company Wiegon GmbH. Its managing director Armin Wolf introduced the company and its core goal: the 100% digitalization of waste management. “Our system allows existing recycling centers to be gradually converted into fully digitalized control centers. We are developing the Waste Management Center 4.0,” explained Wiegon Managing Director Wolf.

Bernhard Weiskopf, managing director of the Environmental workshop association, one of the driving forces of the Ischgl project, painted a fascinating picture of the future trends in waste management. The participants in the South Tyrolean delegation were visibly impressed by the report he presented about the new Ischgl recycling center. Thank you for your visit and the lively exchange during the exciting symposium! We are pleased to be able to accompany South Tyrol into the future of waste management.
