Household waste

Household waste must be placed in rubbish sacks, each affixed with the appropriate waste disposal sticker. Waste can also be collected in containers as a rule, but in this case household waste from private households must nevertheless be disposed of in rubbish sacks affixed with waste disposal stickers. The container lid must be opened before the container is emptied, so that the correct use of waste disposal stickers can be verified, and must therefore be left unlocked. This also applies to containers with automatic tilt locks.

Commercial waste

Commercial waste can be placed directly in containers without the use of rubbish sacks. The container must be fitted with a transponder.
