... why the yellow bag is so thin?

...why the yellow bag is so thin? The packaging compliance schemes in Germany determine the properties of
the bags. The specifications are based on the mini-maxi principle, which states that as little material as necessary
for as much packaging as possible. After all, the yellow bag is only intended for light packaging waste such as
yoghurt pots, tins and cans, aluminium trays and drinks cartons. It is not for guzzling up heavy waste such as
toys or frying pans, because that’s not packaging. Another advantage of the thin material is that it is transparent!
So waste collection staff can see immediately whether a yellow bag contains the right waste or not.

... that a cat does not belong in the yellow bag?

... that a cat does not belong in the yellow bag? A dead cat was found in the packaging waste by staff members
at a sorting plant. Incorrect sorting complicates the sorting process and can even make recycling impossible.
Want to know what belongs in the yellow bag/yellow bin and what doesn’t? Please check muelltrennung-wirkt.de.
Your cat will thank you!


… that separating waste saves CO2?

…that separating waste saves CO2? Recyling is good for the environment. In Germany, the recycling of packaging from yellow bags and yellow bins, and glass, paper/cardboard/carton containers, already saves around 3.1 million tonnes of CO2 per year. This is equivalent to the total annual CO2 emissions of the city of Bonn. By collecting, sorting and recycling sales-packaging, Landbell is making an important contribution. Start separating and learn more about our services here.


… that without recycling there would be no toilet paper?

… that without recycling there would be no toilet paper? Currently, at least 85% of all packaging made from paper, cardboard and carton is recycled. But this can only be done if you separate them from the non-recyclable waste. With proper waste separation, we can all easily help to provide the supply chains with (secondary) raw materials during the Corona era! More information about Landbell’s packaging scheme can be found here.
