Strict compliance with current legislation and full cooperation with national and local institutions, as well as with the competent authorities, have resulted in Gruppo Maio becoming a model of best practice in the waste treatment sector. In a world often characterized by complex dynamics, the transparency of Gruppo Maio has been rewarding both in terms of industry reputation and business robustness. The Group strives to follow the law by exercising it every day through responsible and informed actions.
The activities carried out by the companies forming Gruppo Maio represent a symbol in the fight against unauthorized and illegal activities in the waste sector; only through responsible management of authorized and controlled facilities is it possible to defeat the phenomenon of illegal landfills and ensure the impact on the environmental is reduced.


When describing the characteristics of Gruppo Maio’s business the principle of integration

  • takes on a dual role:
  • integration of activities and actions
  • integration with the local area

In the first case one refers to the company’s business. The planning of the group’s projects is always in line with the idea of integration with the needs and requirements of the local area and authorities. The construction of a plant always corresponds to an actual need in the management of the waste cycle. In the second case the principle of integration lies in the synergy that the Group seeks with the local area which has hosted, hosts and will host its facilities.
By talking and listening to institutions and local communities, management programmes can be identified for the various life stages of the plants, which respond to specific needs such as those related to environmental cleanup in the post-management phase.


At the base of the two key principles mentioned, Legality and Integration, we find a common denominator in the deep respect that the Group has always nurtured for the local area, the community and the workers. The quality of a business grows in proportion to its ability to enhance the social and environmental fabric that hosts it.

Gruppo Maio has always focused on ensuring open dialogue and paying particular care to reducing the impact of its operations. Coupled with safeguarding the local area by offering an indispensable service for the integrated management of the waste cycle, these form the foundations on which each new project is built and on which the Group’s 30 plus years of experience are based.
