Bio and Energy Waste
sorting waste in the Home

Into the bio and energy bins at home you put such waste that is generated every day in the kitchen, in the toilet and at the office.
Thanks for sorting.


Bio waste bin

• food leftovers without packaging

• spoiled food

• innards from fish and bones from meat

• fruit and vegetable peelings, eggshells

• coffee grounds and tea bags

No yogurt pots, bread packaging, fruit packaging or other packaging in a bio waste bin!

Separated biowaste is packed in a paper bag, a newspaper folded bag, or a plastic bag.

If you want to avoid that the bio waste bags freezes to the bin during winter, put a newspaper at the bottom of the bio waste bin.
