Regarding the approved Regulations on cleanliness and order maintenance in the municipality of Myszków, adopted by the City Council on April 1, 2021, we would like to remind you that it determines, among other things, the frequency of disposal of municipal waste from residential and non-residential properties. According to the Regulations, non-segregated (mixed) municipal waste should be collected no less than once every two weeks, selectively collected waste such as paper, glass, metals, plastics, multilayer packaging waste should be collected no less than once a month, organic waste should be collected no less than once every two weeks from April to October, and no less than once a month during the remaining period, and ash from domestic hearths should be collected no less than once a month. The minimum capacity and type of containers and bags for collecting municipal waste are specified in Chapter 5 of the aforementioned Regulations.

The Mayor of the City of Myszków sent a formal letter to waste collection operators, obliging them to verify all agreements for the collection of municipal waste from non-residential properties in terms of waste collection frequency and the provision of containers, as well as adherence to the waste collection rules specified in the Regulations.

Compliance with the Regulations will be subject to control by the Municipality of Myszków, both in relation to waste producers and companies operating within the municipality of Myszków in the field of municipal waste collection, provided they are registered in the Register of Regulated Activities and collect waste from non-residential properties in accordance with the agreements concluded.

The above measures are a result of the persistent failure to comply with the frequency of disposing municipal waste by waste producers and the common practice in Myszków of “dumping” commercial waste into “trash sheds” in residential areas, which burdens the residents of the city of Myszków with costs that should be borne by the business owners.
