Please deliver to the recycling centre correctly.

REFA’s sorting instructions can help you to sort waste properly so that you know which containers to put your waste into. The large number and the description of waste type, e.g. “Iron and metal”, is indicated by signs on all containers. So look out for them at the recycling centre. Good luck – and thank you for sorting your waste.

How to use the sorting instructions

Type in the relevant waste item in the search field. You will then be informed which container number and type you need to put your waste into. Be aware that as you type, suggestions of waste items will appear in a field just below the search field. If your waste item is not found, you can suggest that we add it. You can therefore help us improve the instructions, which will also benefit other users.
