Dispose of organic waste


The disposal of biowaste from private households is the responsibility of the districts and independent cities. Regulations for the management of biowaste are laid down in the individual waste disposal statutes and fee statutes.
This includes, among other things, information on waste charges, waste containers (organic bin, ordering option), waste calendar (collection intervals), existing collection and delivery systems for organic waste (e.B green waste).
Insofar as no organic waste bin is yet offered by the public waste disposal provider, there are alternative disposal offers in the delivery system (such as the disposal options for garden waste at recycling yards or container services) as well as in some cases the use of an organic bin from private providers (commercial or non-profit collection).
In addition to the disposal of organic waste by the organic waste bin, most statutes mention self-composting as an option for the self-recycling of organic waste. If there is a proven possibility of self-recycling by composting on his own property, the citizen can be exempted from the obligation to connect to the organic bin.
The separate collection and subsequent recycling of biodegradable waste (organic kitchen waste and garden waste) has several advantages for the environment: it reduces the amount of residual waste and simplifies the treatment of residual waste. The separate collection simplifies the high-quality recycling of organic waste through fermentation. In addition, the humus components and nutrients contained in the biowaste can be returned to the natural cycle as a fermentation substrate or compost.
