Afvalpas for garbage and recycling stations

You need to have an Afvalpas to dispose of oversized waste or garden waste and construction and demolition waste at a garbage and recycling station. You will not be able to enter without an Afvalpas.

    Who is it for?

    • Do you pay the waste tax in The Hague? Then you are entitled to an Afvalpas.
    • Every household receives 1 Afvalpas. If you reside with more people at 1 address, you will share the card with them.
    • Do you live in a nursing home or old age home? You will not receive an Afvalpas. Do you have oversized household waste or other waste? Discuss this with the manager of your home.
    The Afvalpas is not intended for companies.

    How does it work?

    The Afvalpas provides you access to The Hague's garbage and recycling stations. This is where you can dispose of your oversized waste, large garden waste and construction and demolition waste.

    • You need your Afvalpas to open the barrier at the entrance to the garbage and recycling station. You will not be able to enter without an Afvalpas.
    • The Afvalpas has a credit of 20 visits to a garbage and recycling station. Each year your card will automatically get a new credit for 20 visits.
    • Have you used up your 20 visits? And would you still like to go to a garbage and recycling station? You can top up your credit for free. Call tel. 14070 (available Monday to Friday from 8.30 to 17.00 hrs.) and make sure you have your address information and Afvalpas within reach.
    • Do you still have credit from the previous year? This will not be carried over to the new year.
    • You can take most sorts of waste to the garbage and recycling station for free. You will be charged for disposing of construction and demolition waste.

      Afvalpas and moving house

      Are you going to move? Leave the Afvalpas for the new occupants. The card is assigned to the home address.

      Are you moving to The Hague or are you moving within The Hague? The former occupants should have left the Afvalpas behind. If there is no Afvalpas in your new home, you can request a new one.

      Apply

      If you did not get an Afvalpas or if you have lost it or it no longer working, you can apply for an Afvalpas for free. You will receive your new card within 10 working days.
