Rules on rubbish bags –

vegetable, fruit and garden (organic) waste

Rubbish bags

� Private individuals who pay the waste substances levy and businesses who pay refuse

collection charges may make use of the municipal service and present their waste to the

collection service. Waste may only be presented for collection in the (red) municipal Rubbish

Bags (with yellow print ‘Gemeente Meerssen’).

� Exception: Private individuals households that use the facilities for underground

waste collection (for example: apartment buildings) can dispose of their waste in

the underground container. Concerning residents have received a special pass.

� Other businesses must make their own arrangements

for the removal of their waste.

� The Rubbish Bags are collected once a fortnight

(during the evenly numbered weeks).

� Rubbish Bags may only be placed on the pavement

on the collection day (from 7.30 hours).

This will prevent stray animals from tearing the bags open.

� In principle you may present as many Rubbish Bags as you wish.

Fruit, vegetable & garden (organic) waste

� Each household that pays the waste substances levy and each business that pays refuse

collection charges receives a green organic waste container from the municipality.

� Exception: Private individuals households that use the facilities for underground

waste collection (for example: apartment buildings) can dispose of their waste in

the underground container. Concerning residents have received a special pass.

� The organic waste containers are emptied every fortnight (in the odd-numbered weeks).

� In addition to the organic waste container you may present a maximum

of two bundles of garden waste with a maximum length and circumference

of 1½ metres and a maximum weight of 25 kilograms.

� Organic waste is used to make fertile compost.

Therefore please do not place any other kind of waste in the container.

If the organic waste becomes polluted the entire batch is rejected.

� Keep the lid of the container closed.

� Place a sheet of newspaper in the bottom of the container.

This will prevent the waste from sticking to the bottom and starting to stink.

� Mix fruit and vegetable waste with garden waste as much as possible.

� Place fish and meat refuse in the Rubbish Bag.

This will prevent maggots and stench, while promoting compost formation.

� Make sure that your container is clean and empty if you are

going on holiday for a number of weeks.

� The organic waste container belongs to the house, so if you are moving

leave it behind clean and empty for the next residents.

� Place the container on the pavement on the collection day

(from 7.30 hours) with the handle facing the street.

In the event of frost

Place the container in the shed or garage if possible. This will prevent the

waste from freezing and will make the job of the waste collectors much easier.

During warm weather

� Place the container in the shade.

� Put fish and meat waste in the Rubbish Bag.

This prevents maggots and stench.

� Strongly smelling food waste such as cauliflower and the

like may also be placed in the Rubbish Bag to prevent stench.

Bulky garden trimmings

Bulky garden trimmings (max. 2 m 2 ) can be disposed free of charge at one of the Ecoparks.

Plastic packaging waste

The plastic packaging is collected house to house once every four weeks. Each

household in the municipality of Meerssen had received 12 special Plastic

Heroes-bags for free. If you need new bags: you can get these at the stores

that also sell the (red) municipal Rubbish Bags.

Rules on plastic packaging waste disposal

� The plastic packaging waste can only be

disposed in the Plastic Heroes-bags.

� The Plastic heroes-bags are collected every

four weeks. Collection-calendar: see page 6.

� The Plastic heroes-bags may only be placed on the pavement

on the collection day (from 7.30 hours).

� You don’t need to wash the plastic packaging waste and

can leave the lid on it. It is important that the plastic

packaging waste is empty and that you get rid off paper,

cardboard and aluminium foil. Flattening the waste helps.

This reduces the volume in de Plastic heroes-bag.

Please note: bottle banks may only be used for glass

Pottery or earthenware may not be placed in the bottle bank. Glass panes are

also not permitted in the bottle bank. This can be handed in at the Ecoparks.

• Buy products in returnable packaging. This is cheaper for you too!

• Rinse the glass bottles. This prevents stench and dirt.

• Take your empties with you when you go shopping.

It is hardly any bother and keeps things tidy at home!

• Deposit white glass in the white section, green in the green section

and brown and other coloured glass in the brown section of the bottle bank.

• Is the opening too small: take it back home and break it carefully

into smaller pieces that do fit.

• Do not leave boxes, lids, corks or glass behind.

Take it back home. Prevent accidents by carefully

picking up broken bits of glass and placing it in the bottle bank.

The municipality must clean up litter and the costs involved

are charged to the residents via the waste substances levy.

• Only use the bottle bank between 08.00-20.00 hours.

This prevents the residents in the vicinity from suffering noise nuisance.

• If you notice that a bottle bank is full quite often, please report this

to the Environmental Affairs section, tel. 043-3661778.
