Bulk waste is waste that, due to its weight and/or size, does not fit in a rubbish bag or an underground container. Bulk waste may not be included with ordinary waste. You can transport your bulk waste to the municipal recycling facility or arrange to have it collected free of charge.
Rules for presenting bulk waste
- Separate the different types of waste (wood, plastic, iron, etc.) into individual bundles.
- It should be possible to lift the bundles and they should be a maximum of 1.50 metres long.
- You can place a maximum of 2 cubic metres of bulk waste on the street.
- You may ask for bulk waste to be collected a maximum of once a month.
- Leave any rubbish bags open. The employees can then see that it is not household waste.
- You may put the bulk waste outside between 6.30 and 7.15 a.m. on the arranged day.
- Place the bulk waste along the side of the road without causing inconvenience to other road users.
- Do not stack bulk waste between the mini-containers or underground containers. This would make it impossible to empty the containers.
Bulk waste may not include
- Construction and demolition waste; you must transport this waste yourself to the municipal recycling facility.
- You can hand in chemical products, such as paint or fluorescent tubes, at the municipal recycling facility.
- Asbestos. There are strict rules for removing asbestos; in most cases, you may not do this yourself.
- For example, you can hand in electrical appliances at the municipal recycling facility.
