Andreas dorsch a total of 64,504 tons of mull were produced by the burghers in the district of erlangen-hochstadt and the city of erlangen last year. Around 44,000 tons of this is household and commercial waste, and 20,000 tons is recyclable waste such as wood, paper and metal.
The city of erlangen and the county have joined forces to form a waste management association for the disposal of refuse. At yesterday’s association meeting, members were presented with the 2018 waste balance sheet by managing director silke knorlein.
This once again confirms the stagnating quantities of mull produced in the city and district over the past few years. A total of around 31,000 tons of household and bulky waste is generated, plus around 13,000 tons of waste from commercial operations. The quantities of gauze registered in the city and in the district are about the same.
All combustible waste totaled 40,500 tons in 2018. They were completely thermally treated in the mull cogeneration plants in bamberg and coburg.
It was not without pride that manager knorlein was able to report that the recycling centers in medbach and herzogenaurach had been placed in the "good to very good burger service" category in a test conducted by deutsche umwelthilfe were classified. Last summer, deutsche umwelthilfe investigated the collection structures for waste containing hazardous substances in 62 counties and independent cities. The regular possibility of being able to drop off such waste within a reasonable distance was also taken into account in the evaluation, as were opening times, self-explanatory signs and further information. 60 percent of the recycling centers inspected received a "mediocre to poor consumer service" attested.
