Waste Management Guidance for the local area:

If you live off-base you probably received the “Abfall-Fibel “, a waste management handbook. It provides for each particular location an on-line calendar listing the pick-up dates. You can choose between a print version, an e-mail reminder service and the possibility to import the pick-up dates into your personal on-line calendar.
