Change of address
In case of a change of address within the municipality, the waste containers must be taken with you to the new address, as the municipality does not guarantee the transfer of waste containers between the two addresses.
If you move out of the municipality or change your address in a residence with a communal garbage can system, the grey and green garbage cans used at the old address cannot be left as they are, but must be cancelled with the relevant department. The blue and brown garbage cans are not usually taken back by the municipality.
Since the municipal waste disposal bill for each three-month period consists of a connection fee (fixed fee) of €46.50 plus the number of times the grey garbage can is actually emptied, remember to sort your waste. The less you use the grey garbage can, the lower your municipal tax bill will be. And the environment will also be grateful.
