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.
