Waste management and recycling

The way we collect Plastic-, Metal- and Drink carton waste will change

Starting April 1st, the curb side collection of Plastic-, Metal- and Drink carton (PMD) waste in bags will stop. Instead, the way to dispose of PMD will be to put it in your residual waste container. After collection, the PMD will be sorted in a materials recovery facility. The recovered materials can be recycled and used in new products. To make sure everyone can fit the extra waste in their residual waste container, we will replace all 120 and 140 litre containers with 240 litre containers. This switch will take place in March 2020.

What does this mean for you?

Prevention, reuse and recycling of rubbish contributes to a better environment as well as to a smaller amount of household waste and therefore lower waste fees.

Domestic waste collection

Please call us to find out when the containers are emptied in your living area.

Plastic Waste

The Oegstgeest municipality collects plastic packaging door-to-door for free. That means that you can deposit plastic packaging such as plastic bottles, shampoo and detergent bottles, plastic bags, plastic cups and sauce dispensers separately. The bags are collected door-to-door once every two weeks. You are to put the bags outside prior to 7.30 AM. Put the bags together on the street as much as possible. Please call us to find out when plastic waste is collected in your living area.

It is important that you use only the special transparent plastic heroes-bags. Other garbage bags will not be collected. You can pick up new bags during business hours at the town hall.

Local recycling/City Yard

You can deposit different types of waste at the recycling station at the city yard, such as bulky domestic waste, bulky garden waste, white and brown goods and small hazardous waste. On the city yard, you can get bags for dogs' droppings and collect de-icing salt for private use. Please bring something for transport of the de-icing salt!
