    Disposing of construction and demolition waste yourself

    Bring construction and demolition waste to a waste drop-off centre. By properly disposing of this waste, you make reuse and recycling of materials possible. You need to pay to dispose of most types of construction and demolition waste. You can do this at the reception desk. You can only pay using a bank card.

      Collection of construction and demolition waste

      Would you like to have your construction and demolition waste collected from your home after a renovation project? This is only possible if the waste is in a rubble sack from a home improvement store or in a puinkub. A puinkub is a large sack (1 cubic metre) which you fill with rubble at home. The puinkub rubble sack can be purchased only at the Plutostraat station from Monday to Friday.

      Belangrijke informatie: To make an appointment to have the rubble sack or puinkub collected, go to the waste drop-off centre. You will pay the fees there in advance. It is not possible to make an appointment online for collection. Take your Afvalpas with you.

      These are the steps to have your waste collected:

      1. Pay the fees at the reception desk of the Plutostraat waste drop-off centre. You can only pay using your bank card.
      2. You also make an appointment for collection at the reception desk.
      3. Your construction and demolition waste will be collected at your home during the appointment.

        Conditions for having waste collected

        Conditions for the collection of construction and demolition waste:

        • You are a private individual (not a company) and you have an Afvalpas.
        • You are not able to bring the rubbish to a waste drop-off centre yourself.
        • Place your waste on the sidewalk in front of your home and as close as possible to the street. Thus not next to the (underground) rubbish containers. Place the waste kerbside by 7.45 hrs. at the latest on the day of the appointment.
        • Place the puinkub in a spot where the garbage truck can easily get to it.
