Sorting your Waste

Do you know how to sort your household waste or what you can dispose of at our recycling stations? 

Your waste must be sorted in five types:

  1. Other waste
  2. Food waste
  3. Paper/cardboard
  4. Packaging waste (Metal, plastic and glass packaging)
  5. Environmentally harmful waste (only for single-family houses)

If you are in any doubt about which container to use, then please use the 'other waste' container.

How often do we collect your waste?

We will collect your “other waste” and “food waste” every two weeks and your recycling container (the one for paper/cardboard and packaging waste) will be collected every four weeks.
