Berlin Recycling

Berlin is our home, recycling is our mission.


We are an agile Berlin-based company and a wholly-owned subsidiary of Berliner Stadtreinigung (BSR). Our 500 employees are dedicated every day to a more sustainable world and a cleaner Berlin, where everyone feels at home. Our #TeamKaro is an essential partner for our customers and citizens.

Our active contribution to this is the creation of a state-of-the-art urban recycling system. Starting from the household collection and recycling of cardboard, paper, cartons, as well as glass and commercial waste, the destruction of files and data carriers, to the provision of comprehensive container services for non-hazardous and hazardous waste, and the operation of state-of-the-art sorting and recycling facilities: we always prioritize the perspective of our customers in our actions and advice.

Cem Bora

Interwoven and intertwined, paper grids form in Cem Bora's works. What initially appears as an opaque web surprisingly feels remarkably familiar upon closer inspection.


Cem Bora utilizes colorful shopping bags or eye-catching packaging materials in his works, dismantling them and reassembling them into new structures. The conceptual connecting element of his works is the strict selection of the templates he uses: exclusively packaging and bags that have entered his household through actual purchases or postal delivery are deconstructed and redesigned.


Cem Bora was born in Istanbul in 1965 and currently lives and works in Berlin. Paper is the designer's material of choice. Growing up in a household where everything revolved around textiles, Bora engaged with fabrics, threads, colors, and fashion magazines from a young age.

These stays were made possible through grants from the DAAD, the German National Academic Foundation, the Hertie Foundation, and the Elsa Neumann Scholarship. Dippmann's works are exhibited in solo and group exhibitions both nationally and internationally.

Livia Rauch 

A cardboard box moves as if by itself. 

Sometimes fingers and hands emerge, eventually a whole body. 

Always delivering new forms that evoke associations. 

At times one recognizes architectural structures, sometimes an insect. 

The cardboard comes alive, merging human and cardboard.


Livia Rauch lives and works in Berlin. From 2014 to 2022, they studied Art Education under Prof. Ina Weber, with whom they later completed their Master's in Fine Arts. Rauchs works have been featured in group exhibitions such as "The Meeting Has Not Yet Begun" at the Laura Mars Gallery (2021), "A Thin Line" at the Satellite Gallery Nagoya (2022), "Ein anderer Alltag" at the Künstlerhaus Bregenz (2023), and "Napping in Density" at the KW Institute for Contemporary Art (2024).

Zur Webseite

Mariella Maier 

In her work, the artist makes invisible societal structures visible and explores the boundaries of what is possible. For example, through the founding of a parallel academy within the existing Academy of Fine Arts in Munich, which exposes and questions the institutional structures of this educational space (www.peacedamage.org). In recent years, she has not only dealt with resistant structures but also with resistant materials, including the nettle - an underestimated plant that is used both as a natural remedy and food source, as well as an alternative resource (e.g., production of textile fibers or insulation material). Her work ranges from performative interventions in public spaces to usable sculptures in the white cube. Collective and independent work intersect and enrich each other in her practice.


The work "Open Source" examines intellectual property in the form of patents, which are intended to ensure competitiveness and spur on socially useful inventions, profit and public benefit are often unbalanced. Patents are controversial because they restrict other human rights and have an exclusionary effect through monopolization. The 102 paper stones consist of 648 destroyed files of the European Patent Office.


Her work has been exhibited, among others, at Manifesta 12 in Palermo/Italy, Kunsthaus Dahlem in Berlin, the Gallery of Artists and Lothringer 13 Halle in Munich. She received the Antonia and Herrmann Götz Foundation Prize for Young Art (2022) and was a Germany Scholarship recipient of the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (2023/4).
