Waste sorting

We have shared responsibility for the environment. By sorting properly, the waste can be recycled and become a useful resource again. You who live with us can easily sort everything but hazardous waste*. Here we have gathered information and movies (sorting guide) to help you sort your waste!

*Hazardous waste is harmful to the environment and our health. Handling hazardous waste requires special training and equipment. Hazardous waste is e.g. paint, chemicals, glue, detergents, hairspray, and nail polish. This you should hand in yourself to a recycling center or collector.
