The organization of waste management is a legal task of municipalities. Waste Act obliges waste holders to join municipal waste management. The appropriate waste management for recreational housing is also an obligation under the Waste Act.

Own container

The waste container is acquired by the owner / holder of the property and its location is subject to a suitable road to the garbage truck. The maximum emptying period (without separate application) of a permanent dwelling waste container is four weeks. The waste container for a leisure home is emptied as necessary, however, at least three times in the summer for a maximum of four weeks of emptying rhythm.

Use of a shared container is economical

The shared waste container for multiple users is the most economical way to properly handle waste management. The shared container system can consist of two or more nearby neighbor properties. In the sparsely populated area, the shared container system can also be formed by village committees and road authorities. The waste container must have a contact person to whom the bill is sent and which corresponds to the maintenance of the container.
