Service Description

If you would like to report "litter", please contact the lower waste authority in your city or district.

"Wild waste" is waste that is illegally deposited in the open countryside, in forests or along streams and in public places outside the designated waste containers.

This can include, for example, household and bulky waste, building rubble, construction site waste, car wrecks, but also excess excavated soil (loose and solid rock excavated or removed during construction work). It is also "wild waste" if the waste has been covered with soil.

The dumping of "wild waste" is prohibited and constitutes an administrative offense. It can be punished with a fine.

If the person responsible for the "wild waste" can be identified, they will be charged for the disposal costs incurred.
