Recycling

White, green, blue bags and containers + cardboard and paper are collected every week or every two weeks. Check the waste collection calendar for the exact moments.

You can find bottle banks everywhere in your neighbourhood.

Bulky waste is collected by appointment. It is free of charge up to 2m3 and for tree and shrub prunings. You have to pay for construction and demolition waste.

Private individuals residing in the city of Antwerp can always bring any kind of waste, with the exception of residual waste and organic (vegetable, fruit and garden) waste, to one of the nine recycling centres.

Tip: Try to reduce the amount of waste as much as possible. For instance, take a shopping bag with you when you go shopping and buy products without packaging.

You can find a sorting guide on the Fostplus-website.
