What happens to the waste in your area? How to collect the waste? Should you pay as a resident?
In my region, we have garbage bags in different colors to sort out the waste we produce. We have blue for the PMD = Plastic, Metal and Boxes. A white waste bag for residual waste. Garden waste is discharged into green containers and paper and cardboard are collected separately.
The waste is collected weekly and the PMD semimonthly, monthly paper and cardboard and green waste are collected every two weeks.
You have to pay for each waste bag that is collected and annually you are also asked for a general contribution.
At the moment there is an idea idea to offer chickens as part of a campaign to reduce household waste. The chickens have to process organic waste naturally. It remains to be seen if this will be a success.
