afvalbak

Do you separate your garbage? It is good for the environment. Garbage can be recycled into raw materials for new products, such as new plastic bottles, toys and materials for the car industry. Beverage packs, for instance, can be used to make office supplies, cartboard boxes or toilet paper. Old tin cans become new tin.

As of Friday 1 April 2016 you can throw plastic, tin cans and beverage packs in the containers where until now you could only deposit your plastic refuge. Also plastic bottles, covers, tubes, tin cans for vegetables and beverages, packs for fruit juice.

Containers in our neighbourhood are on Nassauplein and Burgemeester Patijnlaan (across the police station). For more information:
