50 Years Trade


with the material waste paper


or the question "How will be waste paper
become a product ?"




Collecta Rohstoff has been active in the recovered paper trade since 1963. Even then, the founders had an eye for the right market. Working with partner companies in the UK, France, Spain and Switzerland, as well as an office in the USA, they pursued the goal of meeting the demands of the customers (the European paper industry) satisfactorily and with total commitment.

Collecta Rohstoff was originally founded in Geneva, Switzerland. In 1963, it moved into offices in the major city of Frankfurt am Main, as the growing German market in the recycling sector was seen as a big opportunity for the future. After a few successful years, it was time to move to Wiesbaden, the capital of the state of Hesse. There, the company moved into offices in a beautiful old building in the distinguished Adolfsallee district. The company’s constant growth and therefore increased number of staff made it necessary to move once again in 1987, into larger offices in Erbenheim, a suburb of Wiesbaden. Since 2007, our offices have been located in Wiesbaden-Nordenstadt, with good transport links to motorways and the airport.

Collecta Rohstoff is ultimately the reliable partner for the paper industry and disposal sector, in what is still the most important market in Europe and for its neighbours. And we have been for


50 years !


Throughout this period, we have developed into specialists in medium and better types. The particularly high level of care we take, including in the special types segment, has allowed us to enjoy success ever since our foundation.


Our company even feeds ‘problematic’ types (such as PE or other plastic coatings and production rejects) back into proper and statutorily required use.
