No emptying of overcrowded waste cans

Attention: As in the photo on the right, your waste cans must not be provided for emptying! 

Waste cans may only be filled and provided for emptying so that their covers close well. Cans that are incorrectly filled, overfilled or too heavy will not be emptied.

Pay attention to a proper waste separation. Waste in commercial bags next to or on the waste can will not be picked up!
If your residual waste can is not big enough, you can order a larger trash can or you use the residual waste bags from the county administration (one bag for 3,- €). You can buy the bags from your local Union Community Administration.
