Tip:
Wrap leftovers up in news paper to protect against unpleasant smells and maggots.

Paper and cardboard => paper bin

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.

Plastic and metal => yellow Recycling bin

The packaging need not be rinsed, but it must be completely empty.

Should the garbage bin for once not be large enough, please use a garbage bag from ASP.

Flat glass, mirror glass or fireproof glass (silex) cannot be recycled together with container glass. These sorts of glass go in the garbage bin.
