It is again time for the Takkenroute in The Hague. From 2 October to 20 October 2017, the municipality will pick up your garden waste for free. You can make an appointment for collection either by phoning the municipality or through the website.


For an appointment you can call tel. 14070 or make an appointment on the page Collection of oversized waste and garden waste. This way the Haagse Milieu Services can plan a stop at your home during the Takkenroute.
How do you put out the garden waste?
  • Tie loose branches and bushes together and shorten them to a maximum of 1.20 metres long.
  • Tree trunks and branches may have a maximum diameter of 20 centimetres wide.
  • Put your large garden waste out by the kerb before 7.45 hrs. on the day of your appointment.
Why separate your garden waste?

By disposing of your garden waste separately, you are working towards a better environment. Your garden waste will be turned into compost. The compost will be used as earth for parks and gardens.
