Advertisement of non-profit and commercial waste collections

Non-profit and commercial collections of recyclable waste, so-called recyclables from private households, must be displayed no later than three months before the collection begins. For example, street or container collections of textiles and footwear, as well as purchase points for waste paper, are subject to notification.

Collection may be prohibited, limited or conditional by the competent authority.

  • Recyclables from private households are subject to transfer. This means that they are, in principle, left to the public waste disposal agencies.
  • the commercial or non-profit collection of recyclable sanitised materials (recyclable waste) is only permitted if it has been notified to the competent authority;
  • displayed collections may be prohibited or restricted by the competent authority
  • mixed waste from private households may not be collected for commercial or non-profit purposes (e.B. bulky waste)

E-waste (defective waste electrical equipment) must be returned to the public waste disposal authority or to dealers obliged to take them back.
