The disposal of waste from private households, including problematic substances/pollutants, as well as disposal waste from other areas of origin, is the responsibility of the public waste disposal authorities (districts and urban districts). In the Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg, the Hamburg city cleaning department is responsible for this.
Problematic materials are waste that, due to their material properties, must not be disposed of with household waste, as they can endanger your health and/or have harmful effects on the environment. Have your private problem and pollutants professionally disposed of by the Hamburg city cleaning department. You can use the recycling centers, the arrival service or the mobile collection of problematic materials.
