Taking your rubbish to a waste depot

Dispose of your bulky waste, garden waste and construction and demolition waste at a waste depot using your Afvalpas. Most types of waste are accepted free of charge. Reusable goods can be taken to a charity shop (kringloopwinkel).

You can bring your bulky waste, garden waste and construction and demolition waste to one of the waste depots. The waste depots are open from Monday to Saturday from 8.30 to 17.00. There are different opening hours during the holidays.
Belangrijke informatie:

Always take your Afvalpas to enter the waste depots. Read more about the Afvalpas.

Are you unable to drop off your bulky household waste or garden waste yourself? Make a free appointment for the collection of your bulky waste. You can pay a fee to have construction and demolition waste collected. Make a separate appointment for this.

Belangrijke informatie: The staff at the waste depots will help you dispose of your bulky waste in the correct container. This way bulky waste can be sorted by waste type, such as wood, stone and iron. This makes it possible to reuse or recycle valuable materials and to process harmful materials.
  • Construction and demolition waste

    Read where you can drop off construction and demolition waste and what the fees are on the page Removal of construction and demolition waste.

    Company waste

    The rules for rubbish collection for companies are different from the rules for household waste. Companies may not drop off their rubbish at a waste depot. Contract an authorised waste management company to collect your company waste. You will find more information on the page Waste removal for companies.

    Reusable goods

    Reusable goods can be taken to a recycled goods shop (kringloopwinkel). For example, functioning televisions, clothing or furniture. Some charity shops have a collection service. Look at allekringloopwinkels.nl. Or have the items repaired, for example at a repair café.
