Carriers, collectors, dealers and brokers of waste are defined in § 3 of the Waste Management and Product Recycling Act (KrWG):

  • Collectors of waste
    Persons or companies that collect waste professionally or as a commercial enterprise.
  • Carriers of waste
    Persons or companies that carry/transport waste professionally or as a commercial enterprise.
  • Dealers of waste
    Persons, companies or public institutions responsible for acquiring and selling waste professionally or as commercial enterprises.
  • Brokers of waste
    Persons, companies or public institutions that, professionally or as a commercial enterprise, are responsible for the management of waste for third parties.

Note: Public waste management authorities are not considered as collectors/carriers within the scope of their public duties and are not affected by the permit and notification requirements as carriers. This is different, however, for the third parties commissioned by the public waste management authorities – depending on the type of waste, these parties must register a corresponding permit or their activity since 1st June 2012.

The regulations according to §§ 53, 54 of the KrWG also apply to non-profit collectors of waste that carry out the collection themselves (with the intention of making a profit, even in the case of not-for-profit use). The regulations do not apply to the non-profit collector only if they do not carry out the collection themselves; rather, they have a third party handle it.

Administrative Offence

The KrWG also contains provisions on fines. Subsequently, according to § 69 of the KrWG, a fine of up to 100,000.00 € can be imposed on those who do not comply with official obligations for permits or notification; or those who handle waste without permits or despite prohibition. A fine of up to 10,000.00 € may be imposed if the waste management activity has not been registered in advance or the regulations of the Notification and Permit Ordinance AbfAEV are not complied with. Also a missing “A” sign carries a fine. The same is true if the transporter hires a subcontractor without an own registration or permission.
