As a fundamental principle, waste disposal is a service that incurs a fee. You can obtain precise information on what is disposed of when and where from the administration where you live.


Separation of waste

The separate disposal of waste is environmentally friendly and saves costs.


The following are separated from household waste.


  • Glass and cans
  • Paper and cardboard
  • Compost and Christmas trees
  • Bulky waste (for instance, furniture, carpets) and iron
  • Batteries and electrical devices
  • Pharmaceutical products
  • Oils and toxic substances such as paints, varnishes, mercury, etc.
  • Clothes that can still be worn


Glass, aluminium, PET, etc. can be disposed of at container collection points or recycling depots. Recycling depots also take back bulky waste, paper, cardboard and special waste, for a charge in some cases. Many shops take back batteries and electrical devices free of charge.
