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!


Reiling – close cycles with us! Put your trust in a partner that has been setting standards in recycling of raw materials for more than a century. Our daily work is determined by our demands to ourselves. Our results speak a clear language!

Hollow glass from an industrial collection

Glass recycling

We are one of the market leaders in the field of glass recycling across Europe. We offer the glass manufacturing industry best cullet quality. This is, after all, the only way to ensure highest possible recyclability in the glass melt. We are there wherever you need us as a partner of dual systems, municipalities, industry, and commerce! In addition to container placement, we provide regular collection or even pick-ups just-in-time!

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.

PV modules after the initial treatment

Photovoltaics - Testing for reuse & recycling

Our convenient all-round recycling solution for disused photovoltaic modules is equally interesting for PV module manufacturers, solar park operators, EPCs, installers, businesses, dealers and collection systems. Because Reiling supports you as needed with testing for reuse and/or with the legally compliant collection and recycling of your PV modules. With more than fifteen years of experience in photovoltaic recycling, Reiling dedicates itself to this task with great commitment and the highest level of professional know-how.

We are a Rewindo partner | Plastic window recycling

As part of our Rewindo partnership, we now also accept removed or damaged windows with PVC frames (with and without glass) at our German glass recycling locations.
We then separate the glass from the frames and recycle it so that it can be used again for the production of new flat glass. The PVC plastic goes to audited recycling partners within the Rewindo network for recycling.
Rewindo is an initiative of the German plastic profile manufacturers for removed windows, roller shutters and doors made of plastic. Like us, they want to conserve resources and protect the environment.

Certified disposal security for our customers

Highest quality and service standards! We apply quality management methods on all levels of our organisation in order to continuously develop and improve the collection, recovery, and recycling of raw materials. As a result, we keep putting ourselves to the test, working to develop potential for improvement and to build on our strengths. The benchmark for our actions is our motto: Reiling closes cycles! Sustainable success with certifications! We regularly put the overall organisation of our company to the test in various external reviews for our certifications. Across all sites, our focus is not only on our services as a recycling company, but also on our qualities as an employer.
