All sorting stations and waste treatment centres accept up to 50 kg/l of hazardous waste from households without any charges. Hazardous wastes are e.g.
- Paints, varnishes, glues, solvents
- Oils, oily waste, automotive fluids
- Chemicals with hazard symbol
- Accumulators and batteries (can also be returned to shops)
- Medicines, thermometers containing mercury (can also be returned

Keep different hazardous wastes separately from one another. Store in original packaging or mark the contents of the container. Outdated medicines can be returned to a pharmacy, and used batteries can be returned to the store.
What happens to the waste:
Hazardous waste is treated at treatment plants so that it is non-hazardous. After treatment, it becomes a source of raw material, heat and electricity.
Free of charge for household up to 50 kg/l.
