dispose of bulky waste Unfortunately this specification of service has not yet been completely translated.

The Bremer Stadtreinigung (DBS) offers all private households the opportunity to have bulky waste collected free of charge once a calendar year. This service is included in the waste fee. Further collections are possible for a fee of 71.00 euros per collection.

Each household must place a separate order. If you want to use the collection service together with your neighbor, each party must place a separate order.

We will collect your bulky waste:

Order your bulky waste collection easily and conveniently online: https://www.dbs.info/sperrmuell/ or by phone at 0421 361-3611.

The collection will take place no later than four weeks after receipt of the order. You will be notified of the collection date by mail prior to the collection.
Please note when placing your order:

  • Only a maximum of 5 m³ of bulky waste may be provided per collection, and the items may not be longer than 2 meters.


You can also deliver the bulky waste yourself to our modern recycling stations in Blumenthal, Hohentor, Hulsberg, and from April 19 also in Burglesum (up to 2 m³) and Blockland (also in larger quantities). Only residents of Bremen are allowed to deliver waste.
