Waste: Dispose of garden waste Unfortunately this specification of service has not yet been completely translated.

The waste disposal of private households and thus also of garden waste from private households is the responsibility of the districts and district-free cities as public waste disposal providers.

The disposal of garden waste from private households is the responsibility of the districts and independent cities. Regulations for this are laid down in the individual waste disposal statutes and fee statutes.
This includes, among other things, information about waste charges, garbage containers (organic bin, ordering option), waste calendar (collection intervals), existing collection and delivery systems for garden waste.
If no organic bin is yet offered by the public waste disposal provider, there are alternative disposal offers in the delivery system (such as the delivery options for garden waste at recycling centres or container services) as well as partly the use of an organic bin from private providers (commercial or non-profit collection).
In addition to the disposal of garden waste by the organic bin, most statutes mention self-composting as an option for the self-recycling of garden waste. If there is a proven possibility of self-recycling by composting on his own property, the citizen can be exempted from the obligation to connect to the organic bin.
The 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. The separate collection simplifies the high-quality recycling of garden waste and enables the use of the humus components and nutrients contained in them.



Please ask the public waste disposal authority responsible for you which documents you have to submit.
