The SuperDrecksKëscht® in Luxembourg are activities and campaigns of the Ministry for Sustainable Development and Infrastructure, the Chambre des Métiers (Chamber of Trade) and Chambre de Commerce (Chamber of Commerce) regarding the national waste management

Safety and future – is the motto of the activities of the SuperDrecksKëscht®.

The SuperDrecksKëscht® is a trademark which was developed within the frame of the waste management obligations of Luxembourg.

The orientation is based on the strategy provided by the EU with the hierarchy prevention before preparation for re-use, before recycling, before any other use (as for instance energetic use), before disposal of waste.

The task of the SuperDrecksKëscht® consists in using and implementing the most recent information in order to achieve a sustainable high-quality material management in the ecological and economic sense. Carrying out these tasks allows showing the lead in the ecological restructuring of our society.

This leading role is deemed to give impetus to all sectors of the economy with the aim of environmental care and efficient use of resources.

The activities of the SuperDrecksKëscht® correspond to the spirit of the current waste law and form an integral part of this law.

The activities of the SuperDrecksKëscht® are also recognized by the EU Commission through the award of the label ‚best practice‘ in the field of protection of resources and climate.

 

The 6 pillars of the SuperDrecksKëscht®

 

The competence center - For the benefit of the entire economy

Within the frame of the national waste management plan and the national plan for long-term development the SuperDrecksKëscht® is committed to create an energy and resource saving economy.

Private sector


Together with consumer associations and shops, the SuperDrecksKëscht® is committed to promote long-term and intelligent consumption, i.e. waste prevention and purchase of ecologic products. The SuperDrecksKëscht® Center is coordinating these activities.

Economy

Sadly enough, public opinion still prevails that corporate environment management measures as waste separation and the use of alternative products are expensive. Yet, experience made by many company and institutions has now proven that actually the opposite is the case. Ecologic waste management allows to significantly save costs together with other advantages as for instance health prevention.

Cost savings not only result from the reduction of waste disposal costs. Other measurable economic advantages derive for instance from

  • more efficient work processes
  • increased industrial safety

During seminars and exhibitions the SuperDrecksKëscht® Center transmits the know-how acquired for instance by pilot companies to the benefit of the entire economy.
