In the 15 communities that have transferred their waste management tasks to the district, there is now a way to reduce the waste charges, as the environment and works committee decided yesterday at its meeting in hassfurt: four-person properties can apply for their 60-liter residual waste garbage can to be emptied every four weeks.
As wilfried neubauer, head of the waste management company of the district of hassberge, explained, up to now the annual fee for waste disposal was 94 euros for properties with up to three people (emptying of the garbage can every four weeks), and 115 euros for properties with four to six people (emptying every two weeks). If there are more people, there is a further graduation with correspondingly adjusted fees. For properties with four people, it is now possible to apply for the 60-liter garbage can to be emptied only every four weeks, which means a saving of 21 euros, said neubauer.
The idea was to reward those citizens "who live the system", so separate your waste exactly and take it to the recycling center and make sure that only residual waste actually ends up in the black garbage can. However, this option is not available for properties with more than four people.
Where citizens pay the least?
The 15 municipalities that have transferred their waste disposal to the district are: ebern, habfurt, hofheim, konigsberg, burgpreppach, maroldsweisach, rentweinsdorf, breitbrunn, bundorf, ebelsbach, ermershausen, gadheim, kirchlauter, pfarrweisach, riedbach. In contrast, aidhausen, eltmann, knetzgau, oberaurach, rauhenebrach, sand, stettfeld, theres, untermerzbach, wonfurt and zeil organize their own waste disposal, which means that different fees apply. Waste disposal costs the most in aidhausen (three people: 144 euros; four people: 168 euros; five people: 180 euros); thereser gets off cheapest (91.20 euros for up to five people), and citizens also save money in zeil (92.40 euros for three and 114 euros for four to five people) and sand (96 euros for three and 114 euros for four to five people) compared to other municipalities. Knetzgau charges a uniform 104 euros and is thus favorable for properties with several people.
