Procedure descriptions

Advertisement of non-profit and commercial waste collections

You must notify non-profit and commercial collections of recyclable waste, so-called recyclables from private households, at least three months before the collection begins. Notification is required, for example, for street or container collections of textiles and shoes, but also purchase points for waste paper.

The collection may be prohibited, limited in time or subject to conditions by the competent authority.

  • Recyclable materials from private households are subject to transfer. This means that they must be handed over to the public waste management authorities.
  • The commercial or non-profit collection of recyclable materials (recyclable waste) is only permitted if it has been notified to the competent authority;
  • notified collections can be prohibited or restricted by the competent authority
  • Mixed waste from private households may not be collected on a commercial or non-profit basis (e.g. bulky waste)

Electrical waste (defective old electrical appliances) must be returned to the public waste disposal authority or to the dealers who are obliged to take it back.
