After the presents: Essen has a drive-through for the disposal of wrapping paper

When giving presents for Christmas, tons of paper waste are produced every year. From this Monday onwards, citizens of Essen can dispose of their wrapping paper and cardboard boxes at an additional “drive-in disposal station” in the parking lot of the Essen football stadium on Hafenstrasse. Experience has shown that the paper containers distributed in the city would overflow at some point in the days after Christmas, according to the city.

Garbage truck in the stadium of Rot-Weiss Essen

Thus, in the previous year, the waste disposal companies in the Ruhr metropolis first came up with the idea of ​​creating additional opportunities for disposing of paper waste. The service has proven itself. In the coming days, no soccer players from Rot-Weiss Essen or Bundesliga players from SGS Essen will drive up to the stadium, but garbage trucks.

You are not allowed to approach the truck yourself and stuff the paper into the hatch. Hard-working hands pick up the mountains of paper straight away.
