How to sort your waste correctly
Organic wastes => into the green bio-waste container
e.g. vegetable scraps, fruit peel,
leftovers, garden wastes
Wrap leftovers up in news paper to protect against unpleasant smells and maggots.
Paper and cardboard => into the paper container
e.g. newspapers, boxes, paper bags,
exercise books, books without binding
Bulky boxes must first be carefully reduced to small pieces until they fit into the paper container. For bulky boxes or large quantities, use the cardboard bailer at the recycling yards of ASP.
Light packaging => into the yellow recycling bag
e.g. yoghurt tubs, juice packs,
foils / film, Styrofoam, plastic bottles,
drink and conserve cans
The packaging need not be rinsed, but it must be completely empty.
Glass => into the glass container
e.g. wine bottles, spirits bottles,
gherkin jars, jam jars
Flat glass, mirror glass or fireproof glass (silex) cannot be recycled together with container glass. These sorts of glass go in the garbage bin.
Scrap metal => to the recycling yard
e.g. pipes, chicken wire,
bicycle frames, chains, rims
The local scrap dealers will gladly take large quantities off your hands.
Garbage => in the garbage bin
e.g. ash, broken household effects,
nappies, dirty packaging, hygiene products
Should the garbage bin for once not be large enough, please use a garbage bag from ASP.
Bulky waste => to special collection
Green cuttings => to special collection or to the recycling yard
e.g. tree loppings and hedge trimmings
Leave foliage and hedge trimmings in the garden over winter. Many small animals will be glad for the shelter.
=> to special collection or to the recycling yard
e.g. washing machines and dishwashers, ovens,
refrigerators, small electrical devices
When buying new equipment, give high-quality, long-living and low-repair equipment the preference.
=> hazardous materials collection site or the "hazmat-mobile"
e.g. household chemicals, energy saving lamps,
plant protection agents
Avoid using household and garden products containing hazardous materials. There is practically always an environmentally friendly product.
