Local utilities corporations offer complete services, while a few national giants and lower priced competitors are also available. In Düsseldorf it is possible to order power, gas and water all from the same semi-public owned company.

Waste disposal is treated separately, with competition relatively low. Recycling is traditionally very strong in Germany as a whole, with stores legally obliged to dispose of package if the customer so desires.

Expect similar confusing tariffs as in other countries. Once the deal has been done, the commitment can be quite lengthy.
