Commercial transport of waste Notification

Anyone wishing to transport non-hazardous waste must notify the competent authority of this before commencement of activity. The notification shall be confirmed by the competent authority.

The obligation to notify on the territory of the Federal Republic of Germany also applies to transboundary shipments of waste. A notification procedure does not replace the notification.

A transport permit is required for the transport of hazardous waste.

A company that is a specialist waste management company in accordance with § 56 of the Circular Economy Act (KrWG) and is certified for the respective activity does not require a permit. In their place, also submit a notification to the competent authority.

Who should I contact?

Responsibility lies with the Hildesheim State Trade Inspectorate (Central Support Centre for Waste, Genetic Engineering and Equipment Safety (ZUS AGG)).

This procedure can also be handled through a "point of single contact". The "Point of Single Contact" is a special service offered by the municipalities and the state for service providers.
