As a rule of thumb: everything that is dry and recyclable.

* Due to different requirements of individual municipalities, there may be deviations in the range of services. Individual fractions such as paper, cardboard and small metals may not be recycled in the bags in all municipalities. In other municipalities we are obliged to accept additional fractions, such as textiles. We will provide information on whether and to what extent there are special regulations or changes in the range of services in your community at any time on request.

All collection bags are sorted out by hand by our partners, the individual recyclable materials are separated and sent for recycling. A simple principle to reduce waste and protect valuable resources.

If you are unsure whether a reusable material can be recycled, then ask us or, in case of doubt, put it in the collection bag. If something cannot be recycled, we will dispose of it in the worst case.
