Schwendimann AG has been in the waste disposal business for over 70 years, and its first contracts date back to 1935.
In the past few years the company has moved beyond its roots in haulage to become a one-stop shop for local authorities in the Berne, Solothurn and Biel areas. Schwendimann currently collects waste and recyclables for around 40 local authorities. Fees are charged on the basis of sack or container weight. The company also operates several waste collection and transshipment facilities, and also handles logistics for road and rail transportation. Sewer and pipe cleaning is also part of Schwendimann’s service portfolio.
