Food taken away or delivered – despite packaging innovations, most customers currently have garbage.
This raises the question: What garbage can the disposable packaging go in?
Whether pizza in a cardboard box or chicken sweet and sour in an aluminum bowl – the disposable version is common for most food ordered or delivered. The initiative “Mülltrennung wirkt” explains in which garbage can which packaging waste belongs:
Please put it in the recycling bin. But only if it is not too dirty. It cannot be recycled with food residues or grease. So: a maximum of one to two grease spots may be on the otherwise empty cardboard. If there are more stains or if there is still cheese or sauces on it, the packaging goes into the residual waste.
Plastic packaging or aluminum trays belong in the yellow garbage can or yellow bag. Here, too, the following applies: Please, no more leftovers! An aluminum or foil cover is also there, separate from the tray.
Keep warm bags:
French fries or spring rolls often come in insulating bags – paper on the outside, aluminum or plastic on the inside. This composite packaging belongs in the yellow garbage can or bag. So do trays made of coated paper or cardboard.
Reusable packaging saves on waste: Restaurants, delivery services and caterers have had to offer these as a single-use alternative since the beginning of the year. Ask about this – in most cases, a deposit is charged. However, small businesses such as snack bars are exempt from this.
