Waste separation

What goes where

So you know exactly what type of waste goes where you can download the list. Please remember that the list can change. The Afvalscheidingswijzer (waste separation guide) of Milieu centraal (Dutch) tells you what to put in which waste container.

Red card

If waste is found in your wheelie bin that shouldn't be in there, or if your wheelie bin is too full, you will be given a red card and you risk getting a fine. Remove this waste from your wheelie bin before the next collection day. This page tells you what goes where and how to separate waste.

Waste coaches

Waste coaches (Dutch) advise you on how best to separate waste. After you have received a red card, the waste coaches might visit you. You can also contact the waste coaches if you wish.
