>> Plastic - hard and soft
Plastic can be hard, soft or composite. Hard plastics are, for example, plastic bottles, cans, boxes and trays. Soft plastics are, for example, plastic bags, plastic sheets, bubble wrap and candy bags. Composite plastic types can all be delivered as plastic, eg hard plastic tray with foil lids.
Plastic is put in the plastic recycling bin.

Hard and soft plastic should be empty. Only use water to clean if you think it is necessary.

If the plastic is composed of other types of waste, such as milk cartons, coffee bags, food cartons - then you have to dispose of them as residual waste.

Plastic furniture must be handed in as large garbage.

Foam, foam and bicycle hoses are residual waste. You can know foam plastic by being spongy, crumbling or cracking easily.

The municipality sorts hard and soft plastics at a sorting plant before the plastic is sent for recycling.

>> Residual waste
Residual waste includes hygiene waste, cat grit, vacuum cleaner bags and sweeper. It is also foam rubber, foam plastic and bicycle hoses as well as plastics that are composed of other materials.
Residual waste should, if necessary, be put in rubbish bins and placed in the container for residual waste.

If residual waste can be put in the garbage bags delivered (remember to tie a knot), it can be deposited in the waste shaft, but ...
It is forbidden to use the waste shaft for, for example, cookie rolls, blankets and other articles that may get stuck. It is not intended for that.
