More info: coronavirus measures by the City of Brussels.

Bulky waste collection in October

From 5 to 17 October 2020, the Public Cleaning Service is going to collect the bulky waste in Brussels.

The City of Brussels organizes 3 collections of bulky waste every year. These collections take place according to a mixed formula:

  • containers are placed in districts to allow the local residents to put down their big waste there, the places are announced in a leaflet, distributed approximately 15 days before the beginning of the campaign
  • the possibility is offered to persons who have difficulties moving, to ask for a removal at home

Each family living in the City of Brussels has the right to put down 2 m3 of bulky waste. An ID card will be asked on the spot to verify the residence in Brussels.

The collection is thus a good opportunity to get rid of your TV, furniture and other broken electrical devices. Attention: construction waste, garden waste and tires are not allowed.

Please note: exceptionally there is no collection of clothing.

Your items can still serve? Can they still be repaired? Give them a second life:

  • Maximum 2m³ waste per household, industrial waste prohibited
  • Wearing a mask is mandatory
  • Keep a safe distance (at least 1.5 m)
  • Show your ID card spontaneously to the official
  • Open the trunk of your car yourself and dump your waste in the containers

In your district, workers of the Public Cleaning Service will be at your disposal from 8 am to 6 pm at the following places:
