What is mixed waste

Mixed municipal waste: Waste full of energy

Main content area

Waste from public institutions or commercial companies is mixed municipal waste. No further material separation is possible with this waste. We dispose of in an environmentally friendly manner and recycle the municipal waste energetically in the waste-to-energy plant in Berlin-Ruhleben. The resulting superheated steam is processed into district heating for 31,000 households and electricity for 63,000 households. Non-flammable materials such as metal are sorted out and returned to the material cycle.
