household goods made of metal (e.g. knives, forks, spoons, saucepans, etc.)
varnish and spray cans with contents
paint and oil cans with contents
batteries (or return them to the store)
old electrical appliances (e.g. drills, mixers, vacuum cleaners)
Metal packaging may only be put into the collection container free of any residues (i.e. free of drops, trickles, brushed clean, scraped clean).
Metal packaging with residues belong in the residual waste.
Paint and spray cans may only be put into the collection container fully emptied and in an unpressurised condition. Never open cans!
Tips for separating waste:
The following fundamentally applies for paint and spray cans: If you are not sure about the contents, please take these containers/cans to the hazardous goods collection point or the recycling centre of Holding Graz.
For ecological reasons, do without drinks cans made of aluminium; instead, give preference to returnable bottles made of glass!
Put your metal packaging in a clean state in the collection container! You thus avoid unpleasant smells.
When will rubbish be collected, how should waste be properly separated, what can and cannot be put in the dustbins? These questions are answered by our free-of-charge waste app "Graz waste" - you can also receive news from waste management directly onto your smartphone!
