Our Re­source Park Graz

The new area in Sturzgasse is customer:friendly, modern and offers even more space. Here, more than 80 types of waste can be collected, separated and thus more waste recycled. This saves resources and the environment. The Resource Park Graz is open to private individuals, commercial waste must be handed in at Sturzgasse 8.
