Close cycles with us

As a family-owned company, Reiling decided more than a century ago that it was going to collect recyclable materials and recycle them efficiently. This is our important contribution to environmental and climate protection since natural resources can be conserved and an optimal recycling chain created. We are recycling experts, committed to creating an optimised cycle. We are primarily a partner to industry, municipalities, trade, commerce, and dual systems. We support our partners across the entire range from collection, transport, and processing to delivery of high-quality recyclates. We are constantly developing new utilisation and recycling possibilities with innovative techniques and our own know-how.

Headquarter Marienfeld

Cooperative. Sustainable. Successful.

Our partners appreciate our many years of experience as well as our comprehensive service. We mainly serve industry, municipalities, trade, and commerce as well as dual systems. We provide support from collection and transport to processing and delivery of high-quality recyclates. Starting out as a simple raw materials trading business, our company grew to be one of the main glass recycling specialists in Germany in the 1950s. Today – in the 4th generation – Reiling presents itself as a large group of companies with twelve German and six international sites. Despite of this, we have never ceased to be a typical family-owned business. We are proud of this! In spite of all development, our main driving factor still is our commitment and dedication to the common cause! This is what REILING stands for every day!

PET bottles/one-way returnable bottles

PET recycling

Efficient recycling starts when the consumer disposes of a PET bottle. Our technical facilities meet the latest standards and guarantee efficient treatment in a multi-stage process. This forms the basis for diverse usage options for the produced recyclate. In addition to blending in the production of new PET bottles, the granules are also used in the manufacture of polyester fibres as well as in film applications or packaging tapes. Contact us quickly and easily via our inquiry form and receive a non-binding offer.

PV modules after the initial treatment

Photovoltaics - Testing for reuse & recycling

Double breakthrough in PV recycling: glass quality for high-quality melting applications and industrial recovery of silicon

Münster, May 14, 2024 - Just under a year after opening the first Reiling PV recycling site in Germany, we have achieved two technological breakthroughs in the recycling of silicon-based PV modules. Firstly, the glass quality of the recovered PV glass has been significantly improved. In addition, silicon recovery was implemented on an industrial scale. This marks two important milestones in the processing of PV modules towards closing the recycling loop.

Call for World Recycling Day: The correct separation of recyclable materials for better recycling.

We would like to take today's World Recycling Day as an opportunity to call on private individuals and businesses to dispose of recyclable materials such as glass, PET bottles, wood and PV modules correctly. After all, recycling recyclable materials conserves primary raw materials and protects the environment. And that's not all - recycling can also save considerable amounts of energy and CO2 emissions in the manufacture of new products. One of the most important prerequisites for optimised recycling, however, is the collection and separation of recyclable materials by type.
