Waste treatment & disposal



Operates In


Heirs of Swiss, sometimes century-old, family businesses, Helvetia Environnment Groupe was formed in 2005 to support the global response to waste management. The purposes of Helvetia Environnement Groupe include considering new financial models which are more respectful of people and the environment, contributing to the emergence of a “circular economy”, supporting the “common good” and peaceful land development. Those who have been creating waste for hundreds of years are the bedrock upon which the company is built. Thanks to them, we have gained knowledge. We are open every day to recycling the waste brought to us. Helvetia Environnement Groupe is present across the whole of Switzerland, through various activities: waste collections, carried out by Transvoirie and Swiss Recycling Services SRS; recycling and upcycling of waste by Sogetri; and digital waste management, by Metawaste.
