The following case study evaluates the development of a system of separate collection and composting of ‘greenwaste’(from garden— and park—areas) and ‘biowaste’(from the separate collection of municipal solid waste) in an Administrational District around the city of Kulmbach in Northern Bavaria/Germany. Greenwaste is brought by the citizens to decentralized, farmbased compost-sites. Biowaste is collected by the municipality in a separate ‘biobin’ and brought to biowaste-compost-places, which are connected to greenwaste-sites.Seven years after start 17.500 tons per year, or 170 kg per citizen are recycled on 14 compost-places and two biowaste-sites. Costs per input-ton are low, citizens accept the sites well, the system is modularly adaptable to changing requirements and can be directed by one central office.
