Tips from our staff collection

Tip from Edwin

'Cut or tear large cardboard boxes into pieces before throwing them in the paper bin. Put cardboard neatly upright. If you don't make a box flat, it blocks the entrance to the container, so you can dispose of less.'

Tip from Bjorn

'My tip against waste is simple: eat your plate well, haha! That's a joke, of course, but there's something to it: buy only what you use. Freeze leftovers, or bring a plate of food to an elderly or sick neighbor.'

Tip from Renate

Sometimes it's hard to decide which bin to choose. When in doubt, you can use the Waste Separation Guide-app consult or this website. Je can also create your own garbage man or -wife for advice! Talk to us. We enjoy helping you.'

Tip from Gerjan

Tip from Henk

PBD is mainly household packaging material. So the plastic of meat products, the bread bag and the plastic packaging of vegetables. 

Tip from Jelle

Buy a trash can with three or four different compartments. For food waste (GFT), plastic, can and drink containers (PBD), residual waste and paper.
