Domestic waste collection

Citizens in Waalre can seperate various materials. Examples are nappies, drinks cartons (for milk, juice, yoghurt etc) and metal packaging (such as cans, canned goods and wrappings).

In addition some materials are collected more frequently, such as organic waste in the summer months (green GFT bin) and the so called ‘tuinkorven’ (small garden waste disposal sites scattered all over the municipality) in the spring and autumn months.

By separating materials the amount of residual waste in the grey bin (so called grey kliko container) is less and therefore the collection is less frequently. More information (in Dutch) can be found in the ‘waste calendar’ http://afvalkalender.waalre.nl (by entering your zipcode and house number).

In the table below the most common materials are listed, sorted by category including the way of collection:
