Helvetia Environnement Breaks New Ground in Waste Management

Helvetia Environnement joins forces with Rubicon to bring digital solutions to the Swiss waste management market.

Rubicon, which provides digital solutions for waste management, recycling, and smart city solutions, and Helvetia Environnement, leader of the Swiss waste management market, announced today that it has signed an agreement to provide digital solutions to the Swiss waste management market.

This partnership will enable Helvetia Environnement to use the Rubicon platform to facilitate the link between waste collection operators and the companies that produce them. Once retained, waste collection operators will direct waste to the recycling center.

By making it easier for market players to work together, Rubicon’s solution enables companies to reduce the cost of collecting their waste, as well as improving their environmental performance by increasing the share of their waste that is recovered.

Helvetia is active in the collection of waste for communities, businesses, and industries, in the sorting and recovery of waste, and in the field of energy generation from waste. The company has more than 500 employees in the cantons of Geneva, Vaud, Friborg, Basel, and Solothurn.
