Municipal waste, residual waste
Amendment of the Lower Austria Waste Management Act 1992 [NÖ AWG 1992], Provincial Law Gazette 8240
Introduction of mandatory participation by ‘non-households’ (businesses, institutions and other bodies) in the handling of municipal residual waste by municipalities. As is already the rule for households, ‘non-households’ are to be allocated a container volume (up to a maximum of 3 120 litres per year for businesses) depending on the amount of residual waste they produce. Charges and levies are payable for the services provided by municipalities (collection, handling and treatment of residual waste).
