German head of state, President Joachim Gauck, invited a wide range of guests to attend his 2015 summer festival which was held at Schloss Bellevue, his official residence in Berlin, on 11 and 12 September. As every year, the focus of the event was on voluntary work. The first day was dedicated to a select group of people who the Federal President had invited to thank them for the work they carried out as volunteers, giving up so much of their free time to help those around them. Everyone was welcome to go along to the second day of the festival. Many of REMONDIS’ staff also do voluntary work. An excellent reason, therefore, for the RECYCLING PROFESSIONALS to invite ten colleagues and their partners to travel to the event to represent all of the company’s volunteers and spend an unforgettable weekend in Berlin.

REMONDIS’ educational RECYCLING PROFESSIONALS project had already left a lasting impression at the 2014 summer festival. They were, therefore, invited to return this year to set up a stand in front of Schloss Bellevue so that they could continue their work of teaching children about the importance of recycling and safeguarding our planet’s natural resources. This year, however, REMONDIS went even further. A large number of people from across the whole of the group regularly give up their free time to help those around them by doing voluntary work. REMONDIS and the RECYCLING PROFESSIONALS decided to make the most of this opportunity and give away ten exclusive ‘plus one’ tickets to the Federal President’s summer festival for 11 September 2015, including an overnight stay at a hotel in the centre of Berlin. All company employees who do voluntary work in their spare time were invited to put their names into the hat. No matter whether they worked as volunteers in their local sports club, for their church or to protect animals – the type of voluntary work was irrelevant here. The only condition was that their voluntary work was carried out in Germany.
As was the case last year, the summer festival – held both in and around Schloss Bellevue – was a great success and an unforgettable weekend for all the volunteers, to whom the Federal President paid tribute during his speech. Federal President Gauck also thanked REMONDIS and the other participants for helping to make the summer festival such a success. REMONDIS and the RECYCLING PROFESSIONALS would be more than happy to go back there again next year.
This year, the RECYCLING PROFESSIONALS team welcomed a group of REMONDIS employees to the event, all of whom do voluntary work in their free time
Life as we know it in Germany would hardly be possible without the hard work of so many volunteers.
