The ARA service group

ARA has been a driving force in the Austrian recycling economy since 1993. Originally conceived as a collection and recovery scheme, ARA has long since established itself as a recycling expert, a driver of innovation in resource management and the go-to partner for bespoke waste management solutions. Today, ARA is considered an international role model.

The ARA service group consists of ARA AG and its seven subsidiaries – ARAplus GmbH, ARES GmbH, Austria Glas Recycling GmbH, DiGiDO GmbH, ERA GmbH, LogMan GmbH and NetMan GmbH – in which ARA AG as the parent company holds majority stakes.


Five reasons to choose us

ARAplus offers the best one-stop shop for all services related to waste management, resource management and logistics. We took a long, hard look at our portfolio to identify the five key reasons why you should choose us.

  • 1

    Ensure legal certainty

    We know the market and the law better than anyone else. Compliance is firmly anchored in our corporate culture, so assisting you in ensuring legal compliance is second nature to us. Our experts use process checks to analyse how you classify packaging and how you establish the amount of packaging placed on the market. We also offer audit coaching and assistance during internal and external audits.

    Benefit from a one-stop shop

    Our portfolio is unique in the Austrian market and includes all services offered by the entire ARA service group (ARA AG, ARES, Austria Glas Recycling, DiGiDO, ERA, LogMan and NetMan). Our customers benefit from a broad range of consultancy products and services that go far beyond a compliance service for packaging, WEEE and batteries. No matter what size your business is, we can help.

  • 3

    Save money

    The all-round service we offer has significant cost-cutting potential: Our experts analyse waste streams, conditions and cost structures. And then they come up with tailored and efficient waste management solutions. Our goal is to help you save money – using our services often costs less than what you gain through better waste sorting, lower waste management costs and the sale of high-quality recyclables.

We take on your legal obligations under the Austrian Packaging Ordinance and the WEEE Ordinance, offer guidance on all matters of resource management and provide innovative, bespoke solutions.
