Welcome to The Quality Control Association of Waste and Recycling Containers

(Gütegemeinschaft Abfall- und Wertstoffbehälter e.V.)

Introducing our President:

Andreas Wendt, born in 1968, started his career with a technical apprenticeship which was followed by a degree in municipal and environmental engineering. For several years he worked as a senior site manager in specialised underground civil engineering for an international corporate group before switching to the waste disposal industry in 1999.

Mr Wendt’s subsequent engagement in a variety of roles and positions at a national and international level allowed him to acquire extensive interdisciplinary expertise in waste management.

Since April 2019, he has acted as regional director for Central Europe at ESE GmbH in Neuruppin. In addition, he serves as a senator in the German Senate of Economy and is also a board member of the Berlin Football Association.

In performing his role as the new President of GGAWB e.V., Mr Wendt’s objective is to adjust and extend, with the assistance of the other members, the scope and positioning of GGAWB to suit changing market conditions.
