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.


Zero Waste Challenge

The Zero Waste Challenge of the City of Brussels gives 30 households free guidance to limit their waste, from September 2020. You have to register before 9 September. You will then hear whether you have been selected or not.


Still in doubt? The City will organize an information evening on Tuesday 8 September 2020, from 7 pm to 9:30 pm at the City Hall (Grand-Place). Due to Covid-19 measures, we ask you to register if you come to the info night:

  • support to make the start easier
  • facts and information about individual actions
  • the pleasure and satisfaction that you can do something yourself, without obligations or without having to feel guilty
  • less waste in your trash bin
  • you spend less (save 30% on your annual budget for food, clothing, energy,...)
  • your daily life becomes easier
  • contact with others
  • it makes sense

  • Visit to the incinerator in Brussels
  • Visit to the Recyclis sorting centre
  • 6 workshops
    • Compost bin and worm tray
    • Cleaning products
    • Hygiene products
    • Cleaning up
    • Getting rid of food waste
    • Reuse
  • 'Zero waste rallies' in various quarters of Brussels
  • Group coaching during the entire challenge
  • A helpline for all your questions and help

All activities are free.

Participating households are given priority for visits and workshops, but the other available places will be open to everyone. Keep an eye on the Facebook page of the City and this page.

The first meeting with the selected households will take place on Tuesday 6 October 2020.

All residents of the City of Brussels (1000 Brussels, 1020 Laeken, 1120 Neder-Over-Heembeek or 1130 Haren) can already register.

To demonstrate that everyone can manage to live without waste, 30 households with different profiles will be selected (number of people per family, age group, address in the City of Brussels).

  • Living on the territory of the City of Brussels (1000 Brussels, 1020 Laeken, 1120 Neder-Over-Heembeek or 1130 Haren)
  • Be prepared to participate in at least 5 workshops/visits
  • Be prepared to regularly weigh your household waste during the challenge

Then you can still take on your own challenge, at your own pace and with the following tools:
