Domestic waste and recycling


The Municipality of Mönsterås is responsible for disposing all domestic waste. Every household has its own refuse container. The waste must be enfolded in sealed bags.

Curbside collection of domestic waste

Domestic waste is what is left after sorting packages and recycling other hazardous or electronic waste. The domestic waste bins are emptied every 14 days. For summer homes, the bins are emptied from mid May until mid September.

On the day of emptying, the bin shall be placed at a given place by the street at 06.00 pm, with the opening facing the street. Make sure there is at least one meter free space around the bin.

For more information about days of emptying, please contact the recycling centre Mörkeskog on phone number +46 499-178 80.

Sorting reduces the domestic waste

Sorting waste reduces the amount of domestic waste, and also takes care of the environment. Packages and wrappings of glass, cardboard, paper, metal and plastic are sorted by material and recycled in special receptacles at recycling stations.

There are 18 recycling stations in the Municipality of Mönsterås.
