PÖTTINGER ensures that rest areas are kept clean
Federal minister Leonore Gewessler and ASFINAG board member Hartwig Hufnagl were able to convince themselves of the advantages of the Multipress ECO waste compactor at the Kesselhof motorway service area. In an ASFINAG pilot project, the PÖTTINGER ECO ensures optimal waste disposal at three motorway service areas.
According to its own information, ASFINAG (the Austrian federal agency for road operation) collects more than 8,000 tons of waste per year, which causes costs of up to 13 million euros per year. Carelessly thrown away rubbish, mainly plastic packaging, also poses a high risk to road safety.
