The Ski World Cup final relies on new waste disposal technologies

Manage resources efficiently for an environment worth living in

By setting up approximately 460 waste collection containers throughout the event site, using 8 employees, 2 vans and 2 trucks, Gassner was able to professionally collect and dispose of a total of 10,220 kg of waste. About a third of the waste was residual waste, about a quarter was biowaste, and 20 percent was lightweight packaging. Paper and colored glass waste constitutes about 11 percent of the total amount of waste.
Hans Roth, founder of Saubermacher, is happy with the collaboration with ÖSV: “We are proud that, together with the Austrian Ski Association, we were able to create a strong awareness of the correct waste segregation at the Ski World Cup Finals in Saalbach. The successful cooperation shows that targeted measures and the commitment of all concerned can deliver Positive contribution to climate protection.
With Gassner's participation, Saubermacher will also be responsible for disposing of the 2025 FIS Alpine Skiing World Championships in Saalbach and making optimal use of the lessons learned from the Ski World Cup Finals.

Digi-Cycle: Your on-site recycling guide on your smartphone

In order to digitally encourage visitors to recycle at the Ski World Cup, they were supported by the Digi-Cycle app. All recycling stations set up for the World Cup Final were located in the app using GPS, meaning it was always clear where the nearest collection bin was, even in open areas. 3×2 tickets for the FIS Alpine Skiing World Cup Saalbach 2025 will be drawn among all participants who have disposed of beverage containers correctly using the Digi-Cycle app during the World Cup Final or completed a quiz on the topic “Recycling at major events”. Participation in the competition is possible until the end of April.
