Comparable collection points are also agricultural enterprises and craft enterprises, whose packaging waste can be disposed of by household standard collection vessels for paper, cardboard and cardboard as well as plastic, metal and composite packaging, but with a maximum of a 1,100-liter-bins per collection group, in the usual household discharge rhythm.)?
