What should I do with my waste?

There is a common area for residents of your building for the disposal of domestic rubbish known as a ‘Müllplatz’. Here you will find large bins which are regularly emptied by the city administration. Your waste must be disposed of in the designated bins. Placing waste beside the trash can is prohibited and can cause costs which can be passed on to you. If you can not find the ‘Müllplatz’ please ask your flatmates or neighbors.

Important: In Germany most of the waste has to be separated. So in most cases there are special trash cans for normal (domestic) waste, plastic waste (with the green dot), paper waste and organic waste.

Normally you can find bins for glass in public areas in in your neighborhood.
