The way we collect PMD waste has changed

The way we collect Plastic-, Metal- and Drink carton (PMD) waste has changed. Since April 1st, the curb side collection of Plastic-, Metal- and Drink carton waste in bags stopped. Instead, the way to dispose of PMD is 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.

What does this mean for you?

From April 1st  you can put the PMD waste in your residual waste container. Please continue to separate organic waste, glass, paper, textile and chemical waste, because they can’t be mechanically separated.

Any questions? Call us on 14071

If you have any questions regarding the change in waste collection, don’t hesitate to call us on the telephone number listed above. You can reach us Monday to Friday between 9:00 and 17:00 (9 am – 5 pm).

Domestic waste collection

The brown container is for GFT(garden) waste and the gray container is for residual waste. Depending on where you live the containers are emptied on certain days. In addition the waste collection containers near the flats are emptied weekly. During National Days, the waste collection days can differ from above schedule. Please call us to find out when the containers are emptied in your living area.

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!
