Beyond the Tourist Trail: How FCC Podhale Keeps the Polish Mountains Clean

Beyond the Tourist Trail: How FCC Podhale Keeps the Polish Mountains Clean

Remember our video showcasing colleagues tackling winter work in the Carinthian Alps a few years ago? 


Well, winter in mountainous regions is a reality faced by many FCC Environment CEE Group teams. Take, for example, our Polish colleagues at FCC Podhale Sp. z o.o. - Podhalański Park Recyklingu in the Podhale region.


Each week, FCC Podhale manages around 50 containers scattered across the stunning mountain landscape. 


The highest location served by FCC in Poland is the PTTK (Polish Tourist and Country-Lovers Society) hostel, located a challenging 1,671 meters above sea level in the Valley of Five Ponds. Due to its remote location, waste collection here requires a special approach. A sturdy four-wheeler transports waste to a lower point, where a regular truck can complete the journey.


Meanwhile, the highest location accessible by our regular container truck is the Morskie Oko Refuge, perched at 1,405 meters.


The dedication and perseverance of our colleagues who ensure seamless waste collection in these demanding environments deserve our

deepest admiration and gratitude!
