What are collection points for the disposal of packaging that are comparable with the end consumer?

There are so-called sources of waste that are treated in the same way as private final consumers. An exemplary list can be found here. This packaging is generally subject to participation. The packaging waste that accumulates there is normal household waste that is collected by a disposal company (there are no commercial waste containers available).

A good example is the bakery: If it is a small family business, packaging that accumulates there is disposed of as normal household waste. If it is a branch of a large chain, large commercial containers are usually available.
