Garden and park waste: Dispose of green waste

Green waste

What is garden and park waste?

Gardening is often on the agenda in spring and autumn. During this time, large amounts of garden and park waste accumulate; the lawn is mown, trees, shrubs and hedges are trimmed. That is why this commodity is also often referred to as green waste. Note, however, that only topiary is allowed between March and October, as birds breed during this time.

General notes

Filling: Containers may be filled to a maximum of the loading edge. The contents of the container must not exceed the side walls. At this point, independent raising of the side walls is not permitted. No liquid waste may be filled into the container.

Filling weight: Containers whose filling weights exceed a weight of 10 tons may not be transported. Please pay attention to the filling conditions and maximum weights. Overfilled containers cannot be transported safely and must be unloaded by the customer.

Access: Make sure that the vehicle has sufficient space and that access is possible without any problems. The minimum clearance height is 4 metres and the clearance width 3.50 metres. Since the container is lowered or unrolled to the rear, up to 15 metres of space is required. To facilitate manoeuvring, an additional length of 10 to 15 metres should be kept free.

Installation: A suitable surface must be available, i.e. it should be paved, level and stable. Sensitive ground is not suitable to be driven over by a truck, as it can otherwise be damaged by the heavy weight. Furthermore, a container cannot be lifted over fences/walls. Only a maximum height of 30cm can be exceeded.

Permission: If you want to place the container in a public space, you are responsible for the general duty of road safety. Even if we support you in this and help you apply for the necessary official placement permits, you are still responsible.
