On the supermarket shelves, not far from the compulsory white bag, ecologically aware customers will also find blue, yellow and green bags. Blue is for household tins and metal (food and drink cans...), juice cartons and glass (for those who are not meticulous enough to go and throw their glass into the specially provided skips throughout town). Yellow is for paper: magazines, newspapers, old books, cardboard or free ads.

The only rubbish bag you can use in the Brussels region is white and floods our streets when the dustmen call twice a week. The white bag is incredibly strong: it can handle everything.
