Group presentation

Ragn-Sells is a privately held corporate group, operating companies in four countries. Since 1966, we've been involved in waste management, environmental services and recycling. We collect, treat and recycle waste and residual products from businesses, organisations and households.

We want to be living proof that caring for the earth and business go hand in hand

That is our sustainability story in one sentence, as well as our company vision.

We are a family owned third generation company, originating from 1881. Every generation since has kept a vision of a sustainable society at the heart of developing the company. And as cornerstones, all actions should be based on Simplicity, Drive, Accountability and a Holistic view.

Local markets
