Berliner Spaziergang

Peter Kurth entwirft Schlachtpläne für den Müll

Peter Kurth war Berliner Finanzsenator und ist jetzt Präsident des Verbandes der Deutschen Entsorgungswirtschaft. Gegenwärtig steht der 50-Jährige im Kampf um die Wertstoffentsorgung in der Hauptstadt an vorderster Front. Er muss Schlachtpläne entwerfen, Rückschläge einstecken, Verbündete hinter sich versammeln.

Die Welt von Peter Kurth ist gerade sehr kompliziert, aber vor allem ist sie auch: sehr bunt. Es ist so etwas wie eine Parallelwelt, die allerdings jeden von uns täglich betrifft. Bei mir liegt der Eingang zu dieser Welt auf dem Hof: Ich muss nur einmal die Treppe runter, nach hinten links, dahin, wo die Mülltonnen stehen.
