AVEA Aufbereitungs- und Deponierungsgesellschaft mbH operates the Waste Disposal Centre Leppe in Lindlar-Remshagen in the Oberbergisch region. The BAV (Bergisch Waste Management Association) put the central landfill Leppe into operation as early as in 1982. The owner of the central landfill is the BAV and in this function it is responsible for the landfill aftercare after its active operation. AVEA GmbH & Co. KG [Plant for waste recycling and disposal] was founded in 2002 by the City of Leverkusen and the Bergisch Waste Management Association [BAV] as a joint waste disposal company.

It manages a disposal area with approx. 725,000 inhabitants and operates all active waste disposal plants. The landfill already played a pioneering role in 1997 in the context of the validation of its environmental statement. The central landfill Leppe is the first German landfill where the environmental policy and the environmental review, the environmental programme and management as well as the environmental system and environmental audit fulfil all the respective requirements of the EU Eco Management and Audit Scheme Regulation. At present all plants at the site are certified as specialised waste management plants.
