History

Our origin

The history of PreZero is young – even though we have decades of experience

Today, GreenCycle can already look back on almost ten years of experience in recyclables management. The company was initially founded to arrange for managing recyclables from Lidl, Kaufland and Schwarz Production within the Schwarz Group based in Neckarsulm in Baden-Württemberg. Owing to increasing know-how and success of recyclables management within the Schwarz Group, we set out to make our range of services available to third parties.

Parallel to developing the PreZero brand, first talks on the acquisition of the Tönsmeier Group took place.

Following the successful acquisition, Tönsmeier became an official part of PreZero by name in spring 2019.

PreZero as a sustainability consultant

At the same time, with its strategic partnership with TSG Hoffenheim in Sinsheim, PreZero is setting a symbol for sustainability and resource efficiency that is visible from afar: the PreZero Arena.

More than a waste management company

PreZero operates internationally

GreenCycle’s international business in the field of waste and recycling management also operates under the PreZero brand to symbolize global unity. The acquired California-based RMG Recycling company was accordingly renamed to PreZero US in 2019.

PreZero also uses the latest technology in other European countries. At the beginning of 2020, PreZero opened a fully automatic sorting plant for light packaging in Zwolle, the Netherlands, with a capacity of up to 80,000 metric tons per year. PreZero also recently welcomed Komart into the business family, a local disposal company based in Poland.
