Hand in hazardous waste for disposal

Service Description

The disposal of hazardous waste (problematic and harmful substances) and disposal waste from other sources is the responsibility of the public waste management authorities.

Hazardous waste is waste which, due to its material properties, may not be disposed of together with residual waste (household waste), as it may endanger health or have harmful effects on the environment.

Depending on the type of waste, completely different disposal methods may be used or special regulations or legal provisions may need to be observed, for example when disposing of:

  • Waste containing persistent organic pollutants (POPs) such as PCBs,
  • Waste containing mercury,
  • Waste containing asbestos,
  • waste oil.
