PREFACE
Dear resident of Vienna
Our city takes the lead as one of the pioneers in waste management and utilisation
of waste in Europe. It is no coincidence that Vienna counts among the cleanest and
pleasant-most cities in the world to live in. A consistent refuse disposal and separation system contributes to the high quality of life in Vienna. We can indeed be
proud of this achievement, but at the same time it calls us all to responsibility.
By correctly separating paper, glass, organic waste and plastics from non-recyclable waste, you answer to this appeal and significantly contribute to the protection
of our environment. In order to make waste separation as simply and comfortable
as possible for you, we strive to constantly improve our service.
This brochure gives you an overview of MA 48’s extensive offer around disposal
and recycling. The structure is kept in such a way that you can swiftly look up how
to correctly separate waste and where to dispose problem materials and bulky refuse. In the ABC of Waste Separation you will see at a glance where items as diverse
as thermometer, Tetra Pak and tea bag all belong under. Numerous tip boxes give
you additional suggestions for correct waste separation.
Best is of course waste that never even comes about. But when it does, this booklet
will assist to dispose of it correctly and with total ease.
I thank you for your contribution to a clean city!
Your councillor for the environment, Ulli Sima

WASTE SEPARATION MAKES SENSE
Bulky
arguments for waste separation
Modern waste management – from avoidance, correct separation and recycling, to
landfilling or incineration – are important topics, with which the city of Vienna –
within the range of environmental protection – concerns itself. Economic growth,
changed consumer behaviour and the trend to single-person households make
new demands against the disposal of waste.
The avoidance of waste is therefore just as significant as its separation, collection, disposal and/or recycling. Modern waste management must cover all these
ranges, so that future generations could enjoy the benefits of a city worth living
in as well as a clean environment.
Thanks to the work of MA 48, the city of Vienna leads the way in Europe. They
use various methods to work towards this goal, but the aid of the public remains
indispensable.
Waste avoidance
Residents of Vienna contribute significantly to waste avoidance thanks to their
conscious behaviour. This is quite evident from the ongoing demand for multicycle systems. Corresponding offers such as the leasing of reusable mugs or
crockery trailers for events are more and more taken advantage of. Information
can be obtained from www.natuerlichwien.at/wenigermist
Correct disposal makes sense
„Does it really make a difference to separate waste?“, someone asks in view
of the various containers. „Who knows whether it is correctly disposed of!“ The
answer is of course yes! The city of Vienna continuously invests in improved waste
separation and disposal, because that conserves resources and saves raw materials.
Only a fraction of the very energy necessary for a first-time manufacture is
required for the recycling of packaging material. Correct recycling methods therefore also mean energy conservation, thereby making an important contribution to
climate protection.
Everyone can contribute
Correct disposal is very simple: the colour-code system helps to correctly separate waste, and MA 48 ensures its appropriate further utilisation, by emptying
containers, and sorting and disposing of waste, which can no longer be recycled.
The better the collected material is sorted, the better it can be re-used. New raw
materials are created by recycling.
Energy from waste
While substances such as glass and metal are recycled, MA 48 disposes of residual waste at the three Viennese waste incineration plants. By means of energy
recovery following the strictest of environmental laws, waste is trans-formed
into energy, serving the needs of community heating. The city thereby supplies in
the demand of 270 000 Viennese households and makes a significant contribution
towards climate protection.
Positive outlook on the future
MA 48 continuously works towards advancing its collection, disposal and recycling
systems. The more people taking advantage of this offer, the better the chances
of environmental protection succeeding. For this reason the city of Vienna will,
in the interests of her residents as well as the environment, commit herself in a
foresighted manner to responsible handling of waste, now and in the future.

ORGANIC WASTE
ORGANIC WASTE
Where
should organic waste go?
Bio-waste containers can be found all over the city: in sparsely populated areas
with gardens directly on the property, in downtown at the collection points, and
at the nineteen collection centers. If needed these containers could be ordered via
the property management and/or property owners. You can order by making use of
postcards addressed to MA 48, Behälterreferat, Einsiedlergasse 2, 1050 Vienna, per
Fax on 588 17-99-480037 or from the following internet site: www.abfall.wien.at.
Not everything in your kitchen and garden reminding you of organic
waste, is appropriate for the bio-wastecontainer!
This is how to correctly separate:
3
Tip:
Only bring your organic waste, which you would
also throw on your own compost heap, to the biowaste container. In case of doubt, phone the Waste
Hotline on 546 48. We will be happy to assist you.
Yes, please put in the bin:
3From the garden: Tree, shrub and lawn cuttings, leaves, plant residues, bush,
windfall, water plants
3From the kitchen, apartment and house: unspiced and uncooked fruit and vegetable leftovers, plants, potting soil (in small quantities when re-potting), old bread, coffee and tea brews
No, never in the bin please:
Plasticbags: rather collect in a small pail or paper bag (plastic bags must go with residual waste)
With residual waste: meat, bones, food leftovers, eggs, dairy products, vacuum cleaner contents, cat litter, manure, composite materials (diapers, milk cartons)
For the collection of recyclables: glass, metal, plastic bottles, newspapers and paper, colour printing, textiles
For the problem material collection point: batteries, chemicals of all types,
varnish, paint shreds, used oil, cooking oil remains, pharmaceuticals
The following to waste collection centers: large quantities of
loppings, rootstock, coated or laminated wood, branches with diameter more than 20 cm (up to 2 m³ per delivery)

ORGANIC WASTE
How does composting work?
The separated collected organic materials in Vienna are first of all submitted to
pretreatment at the waste treatment plant. The bio residual substances are released
from rough impurities, cut up partly and finally mixed with other materials.
In this manner an optimal mixing proportion can be obtained each time from damp
bio-waste materials as well as from tree and shrub cuttings.
Free compost for Viennese residents.
The composting of the treated raw materials takes place at the Lobau composting
plant and takes between 3 and 4 months. Due to its outstanding quality, the ripe
compost – rich in nutrients and humus – can be used for organic farming on the
fields of the Viennese agriculture enterprise (MA 49). MA 48 furthermore offers up
to 2 m³ of compost per enthusiastic hobby gardener for their gardens or balconies.
The extracted compost is also used for the fertilisation of flowers in Vienna’s parks.
Thanks to the collection of organic waste and its composting a natural
cycle can be put back in action. The use of chemical fertilisation can thus be
avoided. The co-operation of MA 48 and MA 49 aims at securing the continuous collection of separated organic waste by the city of Vienna and at allowing the
Viennese agriculture enterprise to practise organic farming.

Tip:
Did you know that, as a resident
of Vienna, you can get 2 m³ of free
compost for your garden or balcony
at the waste collection centers?

METAL AND CANS
METAL AND CANS
What to do with metal and empty cans?
What happens with metal waste?
You can find bins for metals and cans at the roughly 2500 collection points
allover vienna as well as at the collection center.
The seperate collected metals are separated first by magnetic separation
and machine assortment into different metal fractions and freed of
impurities and foreign matter.
Ferrous (iron) metals are used as scrap iron together with other scrap metals and
pig-iron for steel production in steel plants. End-products might for example
include railway and power-driven vehicle components, washing machine housings
or reinforcing steel. Aluminium packaging can be used in the production of topquality castings.
What belongs in the collection bins?

Yes, please put in the bin:
3Drink and preservation cans
3Metal foil, metal tubes, metal covers of jars and bottles

Where can I dispose of clear scrap glass?
How is separately collected scrap glass further processed?
You can find bins for clear glass at the roughly 2 500 collection points all over
Vienna as well as at the waste collection centers.
Recovered glass is used in the glass factory for the production of new bottles.
Thus valuable raw materials can be saved (glass consists of 63% silica sand, 20%
lime and dolomite, 16% soda and 1% aggregates). In this has Austria saved 221 500
tons of primary raw materials in 2007.
Which kind of glass should go in the bins?

Yes, please put in the bin:
3Uncoloured non-returnable bottles, uncoloured
3Condensed milk and soft drink

For the collection of recyclables: coloured scrap glass
(even lightly colourised glass), plastic bottles, screw caps, packaging,
ead pieces, all other existing substances
16
Precise colour separation during collection is therefore
very important, since high-quality clear bottles can only
be produced from absolutely pure clear glass fractions.
For the production of coloured glass up to a hundred
percent scrap glass can be used. Due to its
composition and fusion behaviour only packaging
glass can be used for recycling (never mirrors,
armoured glass, window grate or light bulbs).

Tip:
Noise may not harm glass collection,
but it does have an impact on your
environment. Please try to keep noise
levels as low as possible, by depositing
waste glass only between 7 am and 8 pm.

WASTE PAPER
WASTE PAPER
Where should waste paper go?
The collector bins for waste paper can be found at house gates or at the
waste collection bins. In more sparsely populated city districts the waste
collection points can be found at street corners as well as at collection
points and also at waste collection centers and markets.
What can be put in the waste paper bins?
3
Did you know how much waste paper
you collect on average?
Viennese residents are exemplary collectors of waste paper: 72 kg of waste paper
per head was collected in 2007. Historically that is the highest level of waste paper
collection ever. The recycling of waste paper does not only save wood, but also
lowers water and energy consumption.
Needed for the production of one ton of paper:
Yes, please put in the bin:
3Newspapers, magazines, catalogues, brochures
3Letters, writing paper
3Notebooks, books, telephone directories
3Refrigeration cartons (uncoated)
3Paper bags, cardboard containers, boxes, corrugated cardboard (but please fill with waste paper or fold). Large cardboard containers can be disposed of at
waste collection centers.
No, never in the bin please:
With residual waste: Handkerchiefs, paper towels, kitchen towels, contaminated or greasy paper, coated cardboard packaging,
wallpaper remnants, carbon, manifold and

How is recycled waste paper put to use?
Waste paper is not only used in the production of „eco-friendly“ (recycled) paper.
Many everyday articles can be substituted for recycled paper. The main emphasis
when it comes to waste paper employment is on folding box cardboard, corrugated
cardboard, wrapping, newsprint and sanitary paper. Yet, the collection and
recycling of waste paper only become meaningful when
these recycled products are bought
and put to use.

Tip:
Empty milk and beverage packaging –
so-called composite carton packaging –
does not form part of waste paper. The
correct place to deposit these is in the
eco-box and/or with residual waste.
Please also do not deposit large packaging

bottles for recycling.
Small or contaminated synthetic particles are not suitable for recycling. In Vienna
only beverage bottles made of PET (polyethylene terephthalate) and plastic bottles
made of HDPE (high density polyethylene) or PP (polypropylene) are used for
recycling.
Tip 1:
Especially for beverages returnable
bottles are a real alternative:
they are used up to 60 times and thus
produce less waste than
non-returnable plastic bottles.
Polypropylene, e.g. shower bottles and bottles used for detergents and cleaning
agents, is an example of a hundred percent reusable substance.
With the concept of bottle-to-bottle recycling, new PET-bottles are made from
your separate collected bottles.

Hazardous household waste
What
is a „problem material“?
Expired clinical thermometers, batteries or varnish: toxic and dangerous waste
materials lurk nearly everywhere. Whether at home, in the garden or at the office
– problem materials have no reason to find their way into refuse bins, drains or
toilets.
When disposed of carelessly they are harmful to the environment, but can also
endanger the health of humans and the habitat of animals and plants.
It is therefore very important to collect and separate them carefully. Care should
furthermore be taken in any case to store toxic substances at home out of the
reach of children. Some problem materials such as car batteries, consumer
batteries or fluorescent tubes are taken back by the trade, who is bound to it by
the waste control act. Pharmacies take expired medication back.
All other problem materials should be brought to the problem material collection
points or the waste collection centers.
Hazardous household waste
3
Which materials are accepted?
3Expired medication without boxes
3Injection syringes and needles from private homes
are only accepted in puncture-safe packing.
3Old cooking oil and grease unlimited (over 10 litres only at waste collection centers)
3Up to five litres of old petroleum such as engine and gearbox oil and
lubricating grease as well as all packaging contaminated with these
substances, cleaning cloths and filters
3Acids, alkali
3Photo chemicals such as developers, fixers and stop baths (unmixed)
up to five litres
3X-rays, film material (unmixed whenever possible)
3Stain and other cleaning agents, aerosol cans (also empty ones)
3Dye, varnish, thinners, cleaners and timber preservers, chemical bins,

Acceptance
conditions for households
What
happens to all the problem materials collected?
Household quantity is nearly always a condition for acceptance at problem
material collecting points. A hand full of batteries or maximally 1 litre of liquid
problem materials is usually an acceptable norm. The disposal of up to 10 litres
of used cooking oils and greases is an exception. These can actually be handed
boundlessly at the collection centers. Up to 5 litres of engine and gearbox oils and
their contaminated packaging are accepted.
The disposal of problem materials takes place in three ways:
Acceptance
conditions for businesses
Businesses also decisively take part in the collection and therefore at the same
time also in the appropriate disposal of problem materials.
Vienna’s waste collection centers accept expired medication from pharmacies at
no charge. Lead storage batteries with advice notes can also be deposited in large
quantities at the „48 “ tent at Rautenweg.
28
• Problem materials, which can be treated only thermally (i.e. with heat),
are brought to the Vienna district heating’s Simmeringer Haide plant and
disposed of in an environmental friendly way.
• Recyclable substances such as cooking oils, lead storage batteries, etc. are transported from the problem material collection points to the central
collection point at number 2 Percostraße, 1220 Vienna, and then utilised.
•
Materials, which cannot be burned (fluorescent tubes and other mercurial wastes, consumer batteries and coin cells, strong acids and alkali as well
as other inorganic chemicals), also go to „the central problem material
collection point “, where they are re-sorted and passed on to appropriate
recyclers (e.g. cooking oil, X-rays) or legally authorised disposers
(e.g. chemico-physical treatment plants).

ACCEPTANCE TERMS
How often may deliveries be made?
In order to avoid fragmentation of bulk deliveries, each person delivering with a
company vehicle may supply the waste collection center only once a day.
For deliveries with private cars, potential recyclables from households may be
brought twice daily.
Residual waste
This is only accepted against payment at waste collection centers, which offer
money acceptance facilities.
Courier service
Courier service vehicles count as business enterprise vehicles.
No problem materials are thus accepted from such vehicles.

this material as structure material for composting.
For a small fee MA 48 will clear basements, apartments, courtyards or attics and
dispose of accrued bulky waste professionally.
Larger quantities can only be taken to the waste treatment site against payment.
For private allotment sites and housing estates the possibility exists to have
tree and shrub cuttings collected. For economical reasons this service is only

WASTE CONTAINERS: (COUNTER-)ORDER AND CLEANING
Ordering of waste containers
Change of the number of waste containers
Every house owner or representative (housing management) can request a first
supply of waste containers as well as the inclusion of real estate properties into
the public waste disposal of the city of Vienna.
If the existing containers should not be sufficient, a written application can be
submitted at any time requesting an increase in the number of waste containers
or of the emptying frequency (e.g. from once a week to twice).
Simply submit a written enquiry with address, land register contribution and
number of the renting units (apartments, business premises, workshops, etc.) to
MA 48, Waste Management, 1050 Vienna, Einsiedlergasse 2.
If justified, a reduction in the number of waste containers can also be requested.
In both cases only the house owner or his/her representative can apply for this in
writing. Federal charges of EUR 13, - as well as administrative charges of
EUR 6,54 will apply (only if approved).
The city of Vienna allocates and deploys the containers free of charge.
The only condition for this is that the planning guidelines for waste container
locations are fulfilled.
The charges can be paid in cash, via payment form („Erlagschein “) or as an ATM
payment at the city treasuries in the magistrate district exchange (please attach
the payment receipt to your request).
Cleaning of waste containers:
The real estate property owner or otherwise authorised user is responsible for
the external cleaning of the collection bins as well as for the other public waste
disposal equipment present on the real estate. At your request MA 48 will of
course also gladly clean your waste bins; the costs of this special service is
charged to the account of the applicant.
Tip:
Please make use of the online
ordering facility for residual
waste, used paper and
bio-waste containers under

SERVICE FOR BUSINESS ENTERPRISES
Delivery from businesses
Waste guidance for free
Potential recyclables can be delivered in larger quantities at the waste treatment
plant against payment. Contaminated existing substance supplies as well as
those mixed with dangerous waste materials cannot be accepted. Specially
trained professionals make sure that the deliveries of these substances are
correctly sorted.
A business enterprise sits with a giant mountain of metal cans and does not know
what to do with them. Professionals from MA 48 share the necessary advice. In
this way hundreds of problem cases per year can be solved for free and in a nonbureaucratic fashion. The experts come to your office to give you advice on the
correct disposal directly on the spot.
Used electrical devices can also be left in large quantities and at no charge at
the waste treatment plant. Large industrial and commercial appliances are also
accepted.
Information and registration:
Mondays to Fridays, 8 am to 3 pm
Telephone: 58 817 - 48 226
Hezardous waste from business enterprises must come with a supply note.
They have to be given to private disposers.
The ABA („Abfallbehandlungsanlage“), i.e. waste treatment plant) only accepts
certain dangerous waste according to a tariff list.
Bulky waste belongs on the landfill site. It once used to be submitted to the ABA
for control purposes and the percentage of existing substances was not allowed
to exceed 5%.
ABA: Percostraße 2, 1220 Vienna, Telephone: 258 35 21- 48805
Acceptance hours:
Mondays to Fridays respectively, 7 am to 4 pm
Saturdays 7 am to 2 pm (no used electric devices and dangerous waste)

SERVICE AT EVENTS
Road sign rental and towing service
In order to avoid any problems with incorrectly parked cars, MA 48 also offers
you a road sign rental and towing service.
Service cleaning
MA 48’s offerings range from cleaning by street sweepers to the deployment of
road sweeping machines. From small local festivities to the Danube Island
Festival („Donauinselfest“), quick and efficient environmentally friendly waste
removal is guaranteed.
Information and ordering of these services in the following ways:
MA 48, Einsiedlergasse 2, 1050 Vienna, 588 17-48 332

the service (e.g. on transport, assembly and number of cleanouts).
Waste managment
On request MA 48 will avail a whole line-up of containers (residual waste and
collection bins for recyclables) and will come to fetch them all again. MA 48 has
everything from small 120-litre containers to mobile waste compactors.
Disposal of kitchen waste
Precious energy can be gained from kitchen waste! MA 48 avails suitable
collection bins for events, fetches them again and takes the contents to the
fermentation plant.
Crockery trailer („Geschirrmobil“)
Two huge dishwasher machines are built into a contraption looking like a simple
caravan or trailer. Everything – from plates to knives to forks and even porcelain
cups - up to 400 pieces of crockery can be cleaned in an hour’s time.
For events we rent out the crockery trailer together with crockery (the latter after
a security deposit has been received). It is recommended for events with more
than 200 people.

COLLECTION OF KITCHEN WASTE
ABC OF WASTE SEPARATION
Aus Küchenabfall wird wertvolle Energie
ABC OF WASTE SEPARATION
Those who help MA 48 collect kitchen waste contribute vastly to the environment
and power industry. At Vienna’s fermentation plant these wastes are converted
into bio-energy. Not only food leftovers, but also expired (packaged) foodstuffs,
fruit and vegetable waste are made use of. Those materials, which remain after
the retrieval of bio-gas, are used for composting and thus form part of a continuous process of recycling management.
A
Kitchen waste disposed of inexpensively
Thanks to the collecting service of MA 48 leftovers are disposed of simply,
environmentally friendly, law-conformal and favourably.
The offering also addresses itself to large-scale catering establishments, catering trade, cafeterias, etc. MA 48 provides collection bins, which are emptied and
cleaned. The kitchen waste is taken to Vienna’s fermentation plant and precious
energy retrieved from it.
