At the beginning of July 2021, Western Europe suffered severe flooding and rising water levels in several river basins. Unfortunately, the floods had a devastating effect in the north eastern Eifel region, where numerous towns and a large number of communities were affected. After the immediate relief and rescue efforts, the main focus of attention continues to be the clean-up and reconstruction of the affected areas which is estimated to take several months.

German company Remondis was given the task of taking over the disposal and treatment of debris and waste in the Bitburg and Vulkaneifel regions. In order to process materials arising from the flooding, the company agreed a rental of an Arjes VZ 850 DK shredder. This was put into operation at the Remondis Bitburg recycling plant where more than 3,000t of debris and waste from the region has been delivered since the end of July 2021.
