Depending on the statutory requirements in your Federal Province, it may be necessary to submit a written request for the initial provision of waste containers and the inclusion of your property in regular waste collection.
For the collection of bulky waste, it is usually necessary to arrange a separate date with the competent authority. Bulky waste is defined as waste that does not fit into public waste bags even after reasonable crushing (e.g. mattresses, washbasins, windows, sports goods, garden furniture, floor covering rolls, plastic pipes). In most cases, the collection of bulky waste is subject to a fee.
