Nothing but pure holiday happiness
How to sort and dispose of your waste from the holiday home

You can dispose of waste from your holiday home here

All holiday homes in the municipalities of Holstebro, Lemvig, Skive and Struer are signed up for rubbish collection. Each holiday home area uses a specific waste solution.

In some areas, dual compartment waste containers are placed at the individual summer cottages, while other areas have underground containers for common use.

Please place food waste and residual waste in the waste container belonging to your holiday home or in the underground containers.

If you have got other types of waste, including plastic, paper or metal, please sort it and take it to the nearest recycling depot for recycling.

Residual waste is either placed in waste containers with two compartments, located by the house, or in underground containers for everybody to use..

How to obtain green plastic bags for food waste

When you have got half a roll of bags left, tie an empty bag onto the handle on the container for food and residual waste. 200 new bags will be left for you during the next rubbish collection or the one after that.

The green bag must remain on the container until you have received new bags. Once you have received new bags, remove the bag from the handle.

If you need more bags, apart from those 5 rolls, you can buy them at the recycling depot. A roll of 40 bags costs DKK 10 and you can pay through MobilePay at the recycling depots.

NOTE: The green bags are only for food waste.
