Upper Austrian Associacion for Waste Management

The ARA, together with the AGR (Austria Glass Recycling), provides Austria with a worldwide unique nationwide network of waste collection containers in order to recycle waste materials. Licence partners of the ARA gain the right to use the trademark "Der Punkt" (in English: "the point"), which symbolises that the producer has taken responsibility for the disposal of his packaging. This system enables collection and recycling of packaging for the benefit of our environment.

The ARA as important partner of the "Umweltprofis" in many respects

The ARA grants support for various projects of the "Umweltprofis", such as the production of reusable bags in course of the project "Lass dich nicht verKAUFen" (in English: "Don't (let) sell yourself"). Furthermore, many of the crucial waste consulting hours are financed by the ARA via personnel cost allowances.
