Leo van Gansewinkel of the local waste company with the same name passed away on Tuesday morning at the age of 80.

This is according to the Eindhovens Dagblad (Eindhoven Daily Newspaper). For many years, Van Gansewinkel was part of the street scene in Eindhoven. The waste trucks drove up and down collecting household and business refuse in the city. Nowadays, the company goes by the name of Renewi and picks up mainly industrial waste.

Van Gansewinkel began in 1964 by collecting waste from Philips in Maarheeze. He brought that to the dump in a truck. When he saw that the waste industry was a growth market, he switched to collecting municipal rubbish. Through Leende and Someren, he conquered the region.

Leo van Gansewinkel struggled with health problems. According to the newspaper, his death was still relatively unexpected.
