Numerous garden owners in Brussels have resumed cutting, pruning and mowing lawns.
The logical outcome of such actions is the creation of green waste which cannot be casually discarded despite its non polluting appearance. If one does not chose the interesting compost option, another solution will have to be found.
Door to door collections
Good news, starting April 1st, 2012, the collection of green waste will be organized in door to door fashion, year round. Other novelty, the collection won't be limited to Sundays anymore. It will be spread over different days: Sundays, Mondays, Tuesdays or Wednesdays, based on your municipality and street. Find your collection day and leave your bags on the street by 1pm.
Intake places for the residents of the Pentagone
All municipalities are concerned by this measure with the exception of the Pentagone. The residents of Brussels city will indeed have to bring their waste to their designated intake place. Find the intake place which corresponds to your address.
Obtain your green bag (1,71 euros per roll) specifically designed for your garden waste. Branches will have to be tied in bundles and placed next to the bag. Caution, note that the green bags may not contain stones, earth, cement slabs, animal waste, tree stumps or food waste.
