Free collection of garden clippings during the Takkenroute

Published: 19 March 2018Modified: 19 March 2018

It is again time for the Takkenroute in The Hague. From 4 to 24 April 2018 the municipality will pick up your garden waste for free. You can now make an appointment for collection.

You can make an appointment on the page Collection of oversized waste and garden waste.

How do you put out the garden waste? 

  • Tie loose branches together and shorten them to a maximum of 1.20 metres long.
  • Tree trunks and branches may have a maximum diameter of 20 centimetres wide.
  • Put your large garden waste out by the kerb before 7.45 hrs. on the day of your appointment.

Why separate your garden waste?

By disposing of your garden waste separately, you are working towards a better environment. Your garden waste will be turned into compost. The compost will be used as earth for parks and gardens.
