We search for active people, who wants to build a sucessful career and, at the same time, cooperate with a better world, with responsible and sustainable actions. This is how our people work: committed with the company and with planet's future.
Estre is Brazil’s largest environmental services company. We clean your city, remove the trash from your home, and deal with the industrial waste resulting from the products you use, disposing of trash in the safest way, either depositing it in landfills or transforming it into raw material and energy to produce new assets.
While most companies still regard trash as the end result of the production or consumption chain, Estre sees it as the starting point for a series of opportunities. The company provides major solutions for waste management: we transform trash into energy through an electricity generating plant powered by biogas at the Guatapará (SP) landfill and by the production of Refuse-Derived Fuel (RDF); we are specialists in reverse manufacturing, a process that reuses more than 85% of electronic refuse; we recycle civil construction materials; and we use microwave technology and electrothermal deactivation to treat and dispose of hospital waste, cutting the volume of residues by up to 70% without polluting the atmosphere. Our services also include decontamination of the soil by bioremediation.
In all its Waste Management Centers (CGR), Estre has a structure for the sorting of recyclable materials, contributing to the preservation of the environment and social inclusion. The company’s CGRs have impermeable soil, the slurry is drained and treated, rainwater is stored, and there is a system for removing and burning off greenhouse gases, using one of the world’s most efficient systems.
We have 13 landfills, 4 transshipment stations, 3 units for treatment hazardous and medical waste, 2 coprocessing operations, 2 recycling units and 2 electricity generating units powered by biogas, as well as an effluent treatment station.
