The garbage guide in English helps English-speaking residents of Kaiserslautern to take care of their garbage the proper way.

Once again, the City Image Maintenance Kaiserslautern (Stadt-bildpflege) published a new edition of the “Gar-bage Guide of the City of Kaiserslautern” for 2018. The garbage guide provides important information for English-speaking citizens on topics such as waste reduction, recycling, re-use, and disposal of waste for the entire municipal area on a total of 32 pages.

The useful brochure shows, for example, the addresses and opening hours of the municipal recycling centers, the locations and dates of the hazardous waste collecting trucks (Umweltmobil) and details regarding the pickup of Christmas trees. An overview regarding proper waste separation is also provided at the end of the brochure.

All pickup dates in 2018 have already been published on the City Image Maintenance Kaiserslautern home page www.stadtbildpflege-kl.de. Here private households and businesses can create their own individual pickup schedule for non-recyclable waste, scrap paper, cardboard, biodegradable waste and yellow bags. Additionally, upon request, our email service will send customers a timely reminder when and what type of refuse container will be collected the following day.

The garbage guide is available for pickup at the German-American Community Office, Lauterstrasse 2 in Kaiserslautern, municipal recycling centers, at the “Buerger-center” in the Kaiserslautern Rathaus, in the city’s recycling centers as well as at the City Image Services Center on Daennerstrasse 11.
