Get details about household waste collections

Last updated July 15, 2022

Collection schedules, accepted materials, materials that are not accepted and types of bins that are allowed. Find out how to put out household waste according to standards.

Household waste or garbage must not contain:

  • Recyclable materials (paper, cardboard, glass, metal and some plastics), which should be placed in your recycling bin instead. 
  • Table scraps if there is a food waste or organic waste collection in your area.

You could be fined if you put out your bins at the wrong time, if your waste contains unacceptable materials, or if you use the wrong containers.
