reclaiming materials and land, recovering waste materials and rehabilitating derelict sites


Explanation:
Without more context, it is impossible to say what is intended.
Stoffrecycling and Flächenrecycling are so hugely disparate activities that I can only surmise that the recycling of industrial facilities is meant, in which both activities may occur at once. This could be rendered as "reclaiming materials and land".

In a broader sense, possibilities include:
Recovering waste materials and rehabilitating derelict sites
Materials recovery and land reclamation
