What used to be defined as waste or garbage is today considered a raw material or a resource for secondary production. Waste is nothing but a misplaced valuable resource. Almost everything can be reused or recycled but the best thing is to avoid buying garbage in the first place. Most municipalities accept waste divided into the major recycling groups,  so called Fenur-groups.  By organizing waste disposal in the home, recycling can become fun for the whole family and the children can even benefit financially from recycling aluminum cans and PET plastic bottles.

See the Recycle Map to see where recycle containers are availble at recycling service locations and drop-off containers around the country.
