Waste management; information

Responsible waste management is of great importance for sustainable development. Waste disposal is a mandatory task of the counties and independent cities.


Orderly and responsible waste management is of great importance not only for the protection of health and the environment, but also for the careful use of natural resources. This is particularly true for densely populated and highly industrialized Germany. The following order applies:

  1. Avoidance
  2. Preparation for reuse
  3. Recycling
  4. Other recovery, including thermal recovery and backfilling
  5. Disposal

In Bavaria, waste disposal is a compulsory task to be performed independently by the districts and independent cities, which can form special-purpose associations for this purpose. These public-law corporations must ensure disposal security for citizens and businesses and thus perform an important task in the provision of public services.

You can obtain further information on the disposal of your waste (collection, recycling centers, fees, etc.) from your district office or your independent city.
