The municipality of Utrecht collects your waste once or twice (city center) a week. In some parts of Utrecht, waste is disposed in undergrounds containers.

Everything you need to know about your household waste

If you recycle your waste as much as possible, you contribute to a better environment and lower processing costs. In Utrecht, we collect glass, paper, textile and garden waste (including vegetables and fruit) separately. You are also required to keep any kind of chemical waste separate and deposit it at the closest municipal recycling center. Do you want to know when your waste is collected? Look at the Afvalwijzer, a website with all the information.
