Container service waste ABC

Scrap wood

Scrap wood, in the technical jargon Scrap Wood Type AI- to AIII, includes all types of wood generated in the private, commercial and construction sector. These include in addition to trunk wood pallets, wood panelings, wooden floors, chip boards etc.

Scrap wood excludes, however, wood with roofing felt adhesions, window frames, so-called palisades, railway sleepers and also so-called picket fences.  All pressure impregnated woods are included in hazardous waste as so-called AIV. Woods and require separate disposal.

Scrap wood waste includes inter alia:

  • Beams
  • Boards
  • Veneer wood
  • Wooden boxes
  • Pallets
  • Scraps from cutting
  • Doors
  • Furniture

Not included are however:

  • Railway sleepers
  • Picket fences
  • Window frames
  • Pressure impregnated woods

They are hazardous waste and require separate disposal. For this purpose we also offer cost-effective solutions.

Please note: In the event that you add other waste products to a wood collection container, the container will be completely classified as „mixed waste from constructional sites“

Asbestos waste and asbestos cement waste

So-called bound asbestos products are:

Asbestos cement, Eternit-/corrugated Eternit panels, facade claddings, flower boxes, radiator cabinets , tubes, sanitary walls, ventilation ducts, particular old floor tiles (Floor-Flex), pedestal ashtrays and similar materials.   Asbestos is particularly dangerous (hazardous waste) and must be loaded and transported in sealed receptacles (packaged in Big Bags [plastic sacks] or in closed containers).

Additionally please note:

In the event that you mix asbestos with other materials, all these other materials become automatically asbestos. As soon as we find even small quantities of asbestos in a lower-priced rubble container, the entire container is classified as asbestos container.

Mixes construction waste

Mixed construction waste is a mixture of waste including mineral and organic components.  All rubble components can be included, they can be mixed with the additional substances named below:

  • Excavated earth
  • Gypsum, Rigips parts
  • Glass
  • Rubber
  • Insulating materials
  • Cables
  • Plastics
  • Wood
  • Metals
  • Paper, cardboard

Please note:

It is not allowed to load liquid substances in our containers!
Contaminations or polluted materials such as Eternit panels (containing asbestos) or paints and varnishes may not be disposed of in mixed construction waste. These substances must be disposed of separately.


Stones and lightweight building materials are frequently used as construction materials for partition walls within buildings in the construction industry. These construction materials are very light in comparison to massive stone walls, they can, however, not be recycled and therefore they are classified in a higher category. Rubble includes the following materials:

  • Roof tiles
  • Wall and floor tiles
  • Masonry
  • Mortar or plaster residues
  • Pure concrete demolition
  • Broken-up road surface materials
  • Washbasins and toilet bowls
  • Bricks

As soon as materials are mixed with e.g. wood, Rigips, metal, plastics etc. a container is directly classified as container of mixed construction waste.

Please note: wastes can only be disposed of as rubble and therefore cost-efficiently, if you fill the rubble container properly.  For this reason, please do not throw mixed construction waste (see above) into the container.

Excavated earth

  • Loam
  • Stones
  • Clay soil

This includes ground soil in all compositions, even when bricks or the like (less than 10 %) are mixed with the soil.

Garden waste

Garden and park waste include:

  • Branches
  • Tree and branch shredder residues
  • Tree stubs
  • Green cuttings
  • Foliage
  • Lawn-clippings
  • Roots upon consultation

Please note: Roots and branches may only have a maximum diameter of 20 cm and a maximum length of 1 meter.  No other components may be added to the garden waste.

Electrical waste / electronic waste

They include refrigerators, stoves, computers, monitors, small household equipment (so-called brown and white goods) and others.


For E-Waste a separate container or skeleton transport boxes must be provided. Old electric radiators (separate disposal upon request) must not be disposed of with electric waste insofar as they are likely to contain asbestos.

Paper, cardboard and paperboard (PPK)

It is important to fill the container with unmixed materials.  Containers filled with mixed materials cause significant additional costs!

Expenditure of energy during the production of recycled paper is significantly reduced (only approx. one third) as compared to the production of new paper made from wood (fresh fibre paper). The water consumption is only 15 %, water pollution is only approx. 5 %. Therefore paper recycling makes an important contribution to environmanetal protection. 

Paper, cardboard and paperboard may contain the following:

  • Documents
  • Cardboard folders (without metal content)
  • Envelopes
  • Books
  • Egg crates
  • Large format outer packaging and transport packaging (please crush)
  • Exercise books
  • Cartons
  • Catalogues
  • Cartboard
  • Brochures
  • Uncoated paper packaging
  • Cardboard packaging boxes
  • Corrugated board
  • Magazines
  • Newspapers

Not included are however:

  • Soiled papers and cardboards (= residual waste)
  • Food wastes
  • Photos (= residual waste)
  • Glass
  • Tissue papers, e.g. used handkerchiefs and paper kitchen towels
  • Metal-, plastic or wax coated papers and packaging
  • Plastics
  • Hazardous wastes composed of all sorts of material mixtures
  • Various materials
  • Styropor (=hazardous waste, consider separately)
  • Wallpapers (= residual waste)
  • Nappies (= residual waste)

Bulky waste

Bulky waste includes waste from private households that because of its nature and quantity must not be disposed of in traditional waste containers.

Bulky waste includes: 

  • Bedsteads
  • Ironing boards
  • Tricycles and scooters
  • Bicycles
  • Curtain rods
  • Prams
  • Suitcases (without contents)
  • Slatted frames
  • Ladders
  • Matrasses
  • Furniture
  • Shelves
  • Carpets and carpeted floors
  • Chests

Not included in bulky waste are wastes from constructional sites such as construction timber, doors, windows, insulation materials and fences, as bulky waste includes only „movable objects ” that you can take along when you move. You can order a container in the required size to dispose of waste from constructional sites and rubble. We will be pleased to advise you.

Other dangerous waste (hazardous waste), such as fluorescent tubes and car batteries or wastes like old tyres, tree pruning and hedge trimming, may not be disposed of in bulky waste.


Tarpaper is hazardous waste material and has to be disposed of separately.
It is necessary to ensure that the parts for disposal do not exceed the maximum dimension of 50 cm x 50 cm.
