Our two recycling centres are available to you for the parts of waste that cannot be disposed of via the separate collection.
At the site in Sturzgasse, Recycling Centre 1 and Recycling Centre 2 are available to you. In Recycling Centre 2, you can dispose of old electrical devices, hazardous substances and packaging professionally and free of charge and in Recycling Centre 1 you can dispose of bulky waste, construction waste or green waste in return for payment of the waste disposal fee.
In Recycling Centre 2, you can hand in old electrical devices, packaging materials and hazardous substances conveniently and quickly free of charge. All households/persons who are connected to the waste disposal system of the city of Graz are entitled to use the recycling centre.
according to the Old Electrical Devices Regulation

To prevent misuse of the recycling centre by households outside of the city of Graz, the city of Graz and Holding Graz check every delivery of waste. In doing so, the city and Holding Graz base their actions on the Styrian Waste Management Act which states that waste must be delivered to the municipality responsible!
For this reason, all vehicles without an official Graz license plate that want to use the recycling center in Sturzgasse are checked by trained control bodies. In the process, license plate number, data of the driver and information about the Graz property – by showing the corresponding registration slip or purchase contract/lease agreement/notification of the municipal tax settlement of this property – from which the waste originates will be collected. Only if this data is provided in full can the recycling center be used on preferential terms. If these data are not disclosed, there is no access (except as a full payer).
This measure is not only fair towards Graz taxpayers, it is also explained by the fact that no other federal province has such a dense network of recycling centres. A call to the respective municipal authority is sufficient to find out the respective opening times of the responsible recycling centre (ASZ) or building yard.
That is why we appeal to all residents of municipalities outside of Graz: Please inform yourself at your municipal authority about the possibility of handing in waste there.
