Waste disposal from A-Z

Waste disposal from A - Z

  • General information on waste disposal

    The residual waste garbage cans, organic waste garbage cans and waste paper garbage cans as well as registered bulky waste must be made available for emptying on the public sidewalk or at the edge of the public road by 7:00 a.m. at the latest (at the earliest from 6:00 p.m. the day before).

    The lids of the waste containers must be closed. Overfilled containers will not be emptied. Strong pressing or ramming of the waste into the containers is not permitted. For reasons of occupational safety, the waste workers are not allowed to reach into the containers. Containers that are too heavy could also not be emptied, as they would then be damaged at the dumps.

    The following maximum weights are to be observed according to the statutes:
    40 l ton = 20 kg
    60 l ton = 30 kg
    80 l ton = 40 kg
    120 l ton = 50 kg
    240 l ton = 80 kg
    660 l ton = 250 kg
    770 l ton = 280 kg
    1100 l ton = 380 kg

    A bulky goods station is approached several times a day, as the recyclable materials waste wood and scrap metal as well as old electrical appliances have to be collected separately.

  • Bulky and bulky waste

    Bulky items will only be collected upon written request. When registering (online or registration card), please state what is to be collected so that electronic waste and other recyclable parts can be loaded separately.

    The waiting time is about 3 weeks. A pick-up date will be communicated in writing one week in advance.

    Two free registrations per household and year are included in the waste fee. In addition, a fee of 20 euros is charged for each additional bulky item registration.

    Please download the registration confirmation before sending it.
    You will no longer receive an e-mail confirmation. You will be notified of the collection date by e-mail approximately one week in advance, so please also check your spam folder.

    Click here to go to the bulky goods online registration.

    Bulky goods express

    If you are in a hurry, you can have your bulky goods collected by the bulky goods express service (within three working days) for a fee of 60 euros. For more information, call 02103 / 72-1723.

    Rule of thumb: Bulky waste only includes items that you would normally take with you when moving.
    Therefore, please only place bulky movable household items, furniture and household appliances that do not fit in the residual waste garbage can because of their size and volume with the bulky waste.

    Bulky goods do not include:

    Construction waste and mixed construction waste such as stones, tiles, WC, washbasins,
    doors, windows, timber, beams, fences, radiators, bathtubs, renovation waste (e.g. wallpaper, parquet, laminate) etc.

    Small waste in bags and boxes
    > Garbage can or städt. garbage bags / garbage incinerator

    How must bulky waste be made available for collection?
    Registered bulky waste up to a maximum of 3 m³ must be made available on the day of collection by 7:00 a.m. at the edge of the public road or on the sidewalk in a clearly visible and easily accessible manner. If this is not possible in terms of time, the waste is to be made available in a traffic-safe, non-obstructive manner from 6:00 p.m. of the previous day at the earliest.
    In very narrow residential streets without sidewalks, the bulky waste may exceptionally be placed on private property (garage entrance or front yard) in such a way that the waste collectors can reach the bulky waste directly from the public sidewalk (without fences, walls).
    Waste wood, scrap metal and bulky electrical appliances are collected by separate vehicles and should therefore be placed separately from bulky waste.

    The applicant is responsible for the bulky item site (no traffic hazards, removal without obstacles and loss of time) until it is collected. If possible, make sure that the bulky item site is not rummaged through or that no items are placed there.
    Items that are not taken along (excluded) as well as excess quantities must be cleared away from the public traffic area by nightfall or can only be removed after payment of an additional fee of € 20 per 2 m³ of additional bulky item.

    All information and rules on bulky goods collection in Hilden can also be found on our bulky goods information sheet.
