Report wild garbage

Description

If you want to report "wild garbage," contact the lower waste authority of your city or county.

"Wild garbage" means waste that is illegally deposited in the open countryside, in forests or on streams, as well as in public places outside the designated waste bins.

These can be, for example, household and bulky waste, construction waste, construction site waste, car wrecks, but also excess soil excavation (loosening and solid rocks that are excavated or removed during construction work). It is "wild waste" even if the waste has been covered with soil.

The depositing of "wild garbage" is prohibited and constitutes an administrative offence. It can be fined.

If the polluter of the "wild waste" can be identified, he will be charged for the disposal costs incurred.

"Wild garbage" should be reported to the lower waste authority of your place of residence. The latter takes care of the disposal.

The contact persons of the lower waste authorities can be reached via the websites of your city or county.
