Why separate waste?

GFT also participates!

We are separating our waste at gemeente Dronten better and better. Yet something strikes us. Our sorting analyses show that 30 percent of our residual waste consists of vegetable, fruit and garden (GFT) waste.

This is unfortunate GFT is in fact reused and residual waste we burn. We are going for 100 percent waste separation. This is good for the environment and saves costs. Will you join us?


That easy divorce is

GFT stands for vegetable, fruit and garden waste. Read all about separating GFT waste. 

PBD stands for Plastic, Cans and Drinking Packs and is single-use household packaging waste. 

Only clean paper and cardboard can be recycled. Make it flat and small.

Empty bottles, jars and other glass waste may be deposited in the bottle bank.

The great thing about clothes and shoes is that you can reuse them often.

From much waste we make raw materials for new products.

Why separate waste?

For now and our future

Our residual waste still contains many usable materials. This is a shame. If you separate properly, new stuff can be made from our waste.

Some types of waste often end up (accidentally) in the wrong bin. 

what goes with residual waste?

Residual waste is all the waste that cannot yet be recycled. The waste is incinerated. Our goal? To separate our waste as best we can, to reduce the number of pounds of residual waste.


There is insufficient recycling capacity available for diapers. Therefore, diapers are allowed in the residual waste. The same goes for sanitary pads, incontinence pads and tampons.

Pizza boxes with leftover food or grease must be disposed of with the garbage. However, clean boxes of frozen pizzas can be disposed of with waste paper.

Used tissues and kitchen paper contain dirt and or grease. Photos , wallpaper or binders often contain plastic or tape. It all belongs in the residual waste

Ambassador speaking

Of course I separate my waste

This is Jan Grootscholten. Together with his wife Leni, he enjoys living in spacious and green Dronten. As an active litter picker, he does his bit to keep Dronten a little more beautiful and especially cleaner. Whether I separate my garbage? Of course! Also wij gaan voor 100 percent separate waste.'
