Apply for a permit for waste disposal


If you want to operate a comprehensive system for the disposal of packaging waste from private end users, you need an official permit.

The operation of a system requires approval.

This shall be granted if:

  • a system has been set up nationwide in Saxony-Anhalt, in particular the necessary collection structures are in place,
  • for the system with all public waste disposal providers in Saxony-Anhalt there are coordination agreements or has been submitted to existing voting agreements,
  • a system has the necessary sorting and recycling capacities,
  • the system is financially efficient,
  • the system has concluded a financing agreement with the Central Authority.
  • Current excerpt from the commercial register
  • Proof of the appointment of a non-employee waste officer
  • Collection contracts for the various waste fractions
  • Voting agreements or declarations of submission with the public waste disposal authorities of the state of Saxony-Anhalt
  • contracts to prove sorting and recycling capacities,
  • Financing agreement with the Central Office
  • Documents proving financial standing
  • Declaration of Intent to accede to the Joint Position
  • The application must be signed by hand by the managing director and presented in duplicate (1 copy must be marked accordingly for interpretation).

The processing time is usually two months from the submission of complete application documents.

Please contact the State Office for Environmental Protection Saxony-Anhalt.

There are no templates for applying for system approvals.

Upon your request, the body responsible for waste management will grant authorisation to operate a system if the permit conditions are met.

The permit may subsequently be accompanied by ancillary provisions in order to ensure the conditions present at the time of granting the permit on a permanent basis, even during the operation of the system. The authorisation shall be publicly disclosed and shall be effective from the date of public disclosure.

After approval has been granted, you must ensure in Saxony-Anhalt a separate, comprehensive collection of all empty packaging from the private end consumer or in the latter. You must recycle the waste recorded in your collection system in accordance with the legal requirements. Several systems can work together to set up and operate their collection structures.

The body responsible for waste management may, at the time of approval or retrospectively, require that a system provide adequate, insolvency-proof security. This security is required if obligations arising from the legal bases are not, not completely or not properly fulfilled and the public waste disposal providers or the competent authorities incur additional costs or financial losses as a result.
