At the recycling centre

På svenska

Do you have waste to dispose of? Welcome to our recycling centres. And welcome to our guide in three languages.

At the recycling centre, you can dispose of your bulky waste, your garden waste, and your hazardous waste free of charge. This service has already been paid for through the waste fee (renhållningstaxan).

Remember to bring someone with you to help carry heavy goods. The staff on site will be happy to help you with advice on how to sort your waste, but is not allowed to help with unloading and lifting due to legislative and insurance reasons.
