Paper and cardboard

Paper and cardboard are easy to collect correctly as all households have a bin for these two types of waste.

Paper and cardboard bin at each household

Each household is offered a seperate bin for collection of paper and cardboard. This bin is for all types of recyclable paper: newspapers, magazines, circulars, letters, envelopes etc.  - as well as cardboard from cerials, boxes and other types of cardboard wrapping.The paper and cardboard bin is emptied once a month.

 

50% more paper collected
Collecting paper and cardboard directly from the household ensures a very high collection rate. Our statistics show that even after the economic crisis in 2008 50% more paper is collected, compared to 2002 with the former system of collection of paper via bring banks and recycling stations around the city.
