Separating waste: bread

Do you have leftover or stale bread? Put it in the bread collection bin. You can find bread collection bins at more and more spots in The Hague. Look where the bread collection bins are located.

The bread you discard in the container is used to produce biogas.

          How to use the bread collection bin

          • Throw your old bread in the bin. Remove any any bags or wrappings.
          • Throw only bread into the bread collection bin.

          If something other than bread is thrown into the bread collection bin, then everything will be thrown away as regular waste.

          Prevent nuisance from rats and seagulls

          Do not throw any bread on the street and do not feed the birds. Extra food often is left standing. This attracts rats and seagulls.
