Pollutant mobile again in the district on the way

In the period from March 1 to March 24, 2021 inclusive, specially marked collection vehicles will again be on the road to accept hazardous waste. This is a convenient way for citizens to dispose of this waste properly.

Waste hazardous to the environment is accepted. The maximum quantity accepted is limited to 100 kg per collection and household. The containers must not weigh more than 20 kg and must not be larger than 20 liters. For laboratory chemicals, concentrates, acids and alkalis as well as PCB-containing condensers, the total acceptance quantity is a maximum of 10 kg and 10 liters, respectively, and for cyanides and mercury-containing waste, 1 kg and 1 liter, respectively. Solar thermal fluid and antifreeze from solar systems can usually be returned via the installer. The free drop-off at the mobile hazardous waste collection point for private households is limited to a maximum of 20 liters per collection (spring and fall).

Liquid hazardous waste must not be mixed with each other and, if possible, must be delivered to the collection vehicle in the original container with appropriate labeling. Under no circumstances may they be disposed of down the toilet or drain. The containers must be tightly closed and will be disposed of with them. Used oils are not accepted, as all dealers are legally obligated to take back used oil in the amount of the fresh oil sold. Used medicines from private households are accepted without packaging in small quantities.

In addition to hazardous waste, small electrical appliances up to a maximum room volume of 10 liters can also be handed in. Televisions and monitors as well as all large appliances (such as stoves, washing machines, dryers, microwaves, extractor hoods, ironing machines, lawn mowers, etc.) are generally excluded from acceptance via the mobile collection. They can be delivered free of charge in household quantities to the waste disposal facilities of the district or disposed of via the bulky waste collection or depots of the cities and municipalities.

Neon tubes and energy-saving lamps can be handed in up to a maximum quantity of 10 pieces. In larger quantities, they can also be handed in free of charge at the waste disposal facilities of the Waldeck-Frankenberg district. Commercial waste producers with a quantity of more than 50 lamps to be handed in should contact commercial collection points. The hazardous waste must be delivered personally to protect playing children. Under no circumstances may the waste be left unattended at the collection points. In order to ensure a smooth process, please do not park your own motor vehicle at the collection point for the mobile hazardous waste unit and keep the access roads clear. Please wear personal protective equipment, consisting of gloves and sturdy shoes, as well as mouth and nose protection when making deliveries.

Small quantities of hazardous waste from private households can be handed in free of charge. A disposal charge of 7 euros per kilogram is levied on craft businesses, small businesses, service companies or from the administrative sector. By using pollutant-free products, you are making an important contribution to environmental protection.
