Hand in residual waste for disposal

Service Description

Your household produces household waste. In Germany, you are obliged to separate waste collection. This means, for example, that you must dispose of paper, glass, packaging waste or electronic waste separately.

Some types of waste are not suitable for separate waste collection because they are very difficult or impossible to sort or recycle. Residual waste includes diapers, cigarette butts, vacuum cleaner bags, hygiene masks, medical dressings, paper tissues, ashes, sanitary towels and cat litter.

The disposal of residual waste from private households is the responsibility of the public waste disposal authorities. This also applies to residual waste from other areas, for example from commercial enterprises or public institutions.

All information on the disposal of your residual waste can be found in the municipal waste disposal regulations. There you will find information on waste fees, the prescribed size of waste containers, how to order them and the waste calendar, which tells you the collection intervals.
