On-Post recycling and trash separation

Directorate of Public Works Installation Coordinators

Garbage on-post is everyone’s business. We all generate it, handle it, and pay to dispose of it.

At the local trash island, community members are reminded to sort their recyclable materials from the normal trash, and place them in the proper containers as specified.

Place only household waste in the large regular trash containers.


Small material such as small parts of metal, wood, electrical appliances (toasters, irons, fans), and electronic devices are not to be placed in the regular trash containers. Those items should be taken to the recycling locations on each installation, or placed to the sides of the containers inside of the trash islands.


Contact the Installation Coordinator Office or Refuse and Recycling Branch at 420 -7343 or 0711-819-7343 to arrange curb site pick up for large bulky material such as mattress, furniture, or bicycles.

Larger plastic items can be placed to the side of the containers inside of the trash islands.

Cleaning Supplies/Batteries/Hazardous Waste:

Kitchen cleaning items, such as oven or glass cleaning, sprays paint, motor oil, car batteries etc. should be taken to the installation hazardous waste cages on each installation. Items that are in good-use, can be donated to the re-use center on Panzer Kaserne for fellow community members to use, free.
