Garden waste disposal

Service Description

The disposal of garden waste from private households is the responsibility of the districts and independent cities. Regulations on this are laid down in the individual waste disposal statutes and fee statutes.
These include information on waste charges, waste containers (organic waste garbage cans, ordering options), waste calendars (collection intervals), and existing collection and delivery systems for garden waste.
If the public waste management authority does not yet offer a bio garbage can, there are alternative disposal options in the collection system (such as the possibility of dropping off garden waste at recycling centers or container services) and in some cases the use of a bio garbage can from private providers (commercial or non-profit collection).
In addition to the disposal of garden waste through the organic waste garbage can, most statutes mention self-composting as an option to recycle garden waste oneself. If the possibility of self-recycling through composting on one's own property is proven, the citizen can be exempted from the obligation to connect to the organic waste garbage can.
Separate collection and subsequent recycling of garden waste has several advantages for the environment: it reduces the amount of residual waste and simplifies the treatment of residual waste. Separate collection simplifies the high-quality recycling of garden waste and enables the use of the humus components and nutrients it contains.
