Household waste calendar

Look at the online household waste calendar to see which household rubbish will be collected in your street and which day of the week.

Put out your garbage bag, organic waste (GFT) bucket, wheelie bin or old paper before 7.45 hrs. on the collection day. You may also put out your household waste as of 22.00 hrs. the evening before the collection day.

Does your neighbourhood have aboveground or underground containers for household waste or plastic packaging, metal packaging and drink cartons (PMD)? The collection days on the household waste calendar do not apply to these bins and containers. You can dispose of your rubbish in these containers any day of the week.

Go to the online household waste calendar. Fill in your postal code (postcode) and house number (huisnummer). You will see right away when the household rubbish will be collected in your street.

Paper calendar

You can also download and print out the household waste calendar (huisvuilkalender) for your street. If you do not have a printer, you can have the calendar printed out for you at a city district office or public library. No appointment is needed.

Collection days for Christmas trees

The municipality will pick up Christmas trees in the city once a week during the month of January:

  • Look at the household waste calendar to see when the Christmas trees will be collected in your street.
  • Place your Christmas tree on the sidewalk before 7.45 hrs. on the collection day.

Good to know

  • The way you should dispose of your waste depends on the neighbourhood where you live. Look for the rules on the page How to put out your household waste.
  • Was your waste not collected before 17.00 hrs.? Report this to the municipality through the page Report uncollected rubbish and old paper.
  • On the page Separating waste and recycling you will see the kinds of waste you can dispose of separately. You are helping the environment by separating your waste.
  • Household waste which does not fit into a garbage bag or container is considered bulky waste. You can take bulky waste and garden waste to a waste depot or make an appointment to have it collected at your house for free.
