Big Waste

What is big waste?

Big waste is:

  • Household waste which does not fit in a garbage bag, mini container or underground rubbish container. Or waste which is too heavy.
  • Large garden waste which does not fit in the Green (GFT) container. For example, tree trimmings and branches.

Construction, demolition or chemichal waste are not big waste and can be brought to one of our Collection Centers.

Locations for your big waste
Large items of waste that don’t fit into the waste container can be brought to one of our four waste collection centers. For example: a couch, a mattress, wood or plasterboard. These locations have a number of large containers in which you can get rid of your waste. Our colleagues at each collection center will be happy to help you finding the right container for your waste.
