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

Garden waste can be disposed of either in the organic bin or at a collection point for garden waste / composting plant.

Garden waste is exclusively organic plant waste that is generated during the maintenance and management of the garden. You can either dispose of them in the organic bin or deliver them directly to the nearest collection point for garden waste or to the composting plant.

In addition, under certain conditions, recycling on one's own property is also possible, for example if this is also intended to provide an exemption from the use of the organic bin. With this form of self-composting, however, certain conditions must be met, which are best clarified with the responsible lower waste disposal authority.


The responsible contact persons for the area of waste management can be found on the website of the state government of Schleswig-Holstein.
