property-specific waste container

Each property must have waste containers for waste produced therein that are emptied according to waste management regulations. Waste containers are emptied by a regional contractor. No recyclable or hazardous waste may be placed into the waste container. Such waste must be delivered to the waste station or direct collection from the property must be organised under an agreement.

We also offer overall waste management services according to specific needs, ranging from waste transportation and handling to waste information and training.

Property-specific emptying intervals for waste containers
