Biowaste Disposal

Biowaste accounts for a large part of the waste generated by private households. Extensive bio-waste collection can contribute significantly to the reduction of residual waste generation in this area.

In Lower Saxony, therefore, the approach is to reduce the volume of waste to be disposed of by collecting bio-waste as widely as possible and by composting or fermentation. The competent authority is obliged to make special efforts to separate and recover bio-waste.

The bio-ton is available for the disposal of biowaste in many municipal areas. But even with simple methods, such as self-composting, it is possible to produce high-quality compost. Self-composting reduces the amount of waste to be disposed of. Dedicated citizens can also reduce the cost of disposing of their waste. If the compost produced is used as a natural fertiliser in your own garden, this can lead to higher yields and savings in the purchase of fertilizers.

Who should I contact?

The responsibility lies with the district, the district-free city, the cities of Cuxhaven and Göttingen or their waste management companies, the special-purpose associations waste management Celle, Hildesheim and the Hanover region as well as the municipal institutions of public law in Goslar , Lüneburg, Nienburg, Peine and Wolfsburg.

Information is also provided by the waste management companies which dispose of the waste at their respective residences.

What else should I know?

Compost produced in Lower Saxony is mainly used in agriculture, landscaping and horticulture. The levy is also made to private individuals. The good quality of the Lower Saxon compost and the marketing of sub-quantities via the earth and humus plants based in Lower Saxony, which supply their products to many European countries, contribute significantly to the exploitation and marketing.

Good quality as an essential prerequisite for a good use of the compost can only be achieved if careful separation of suitable and unsuitable bio-waste is taken into account during collection. Citizens can have a significant impact on the quality of compost through their commitment and behaviour.
