Coronavirus measures

The City of Brussels has taken several decisions in order to best respect the measures of the federal government in the fight against the coronavirus (Covid-19). More info: coronavirus measures by the City of Brussels. Please note: at the Administrative Centre & liaison offices, all citizens are asked to come alone, maximum 15 minutes before the appointment time, wear a face mask (obligatory) and disinfect their hands.


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.
