The newly integrated company is made up of two major business divisions: Van Gansewinkel provides waste services and AVR performs all activities in the area of sustainable waste processing. The new merger has, given its economy of scale, firmly established the integrated company as one of the leading waste and environmental service providers in Europe. AVR - Van Gansewinkel is the largest waste and environmental service provider in the Benelux. More than 6000 employees in 9 countries serve nearly 50,000 customers on a day-to-day basis. The company operates within the entire waste chain, from initial sampling to final processing, including all intermediate steps such as collection, recycling and production of raw materials and fuels. Van Gansewinkel has rolled out CLEAR across its sites in the Netherlands. CLEAR serves as a very important gauge for implementation of a uniform business template, which has led to the harmonisation of business activities in Van Gansewinkel, but has left Van Gansewinkel’s focus on the regional market still intact. CLEAR is deployed in the commercial, operational and financial departments of Household Waste, Sales, Roll Container, Hazardous Waste, Storage and Shipment and Crane activities, among others.
