Obligation to use biodegradable green bags from Bruxelles-Propreté
Non-regulatory green bags are still being offered when collecting garden waste. It mainly concerns the old regional model of bags. Since 8 June 2020, only official bags (biodegradable green bags from Bruxelles-Propreté) are being collected.
What to do with illegal bags?
The plastic green bags are no longer regulated since 1 January 2018. Residents of Brussels who still have them are asked to keep them for household use or to throw them empty in the new blue bag. They will not be exchanged or refunded.
We only collect biodegradable green bags (Bruxelles-Propreté)
