Household waste is waste that can not be separated for reuse or recycling like cigarettes, rubber and cork. Waste types that you can separate, such as organic waste, glass and paper, are not household waste.
How is the waste collected?
Household waste and organic kitchen and garden waste are gathered separately in small carts (the grey cart and the green cart) and then collected from outside family homes at set times.
For people living in apartments
The system is slightly different for people living in apartments: their organic waste is not gathered separately, but is disposed together with their household waste, either in bags or in underground containers. To use the underground containers, you need a citypass.
