Waste and recycling

If you have just arrived in a new neighbourhood or municipality, you may notice that the waste collection is organised a little bit differently compared to your previous neighbourhood or municipality. Waste is collected in 2 different ways in Almere: by underground containers, if you live in an apartment, or with waste containers at the property. All residents can use containers for glass and paper/cardboard in their neighbourhoods.

In Almere, people separate household waste so that we can use it as raw material for new products. This is better for our planet and we limit the costs of processing residual waste.

We ask you to separate:

  • Vegetables, fruit, garden waste, food waste (gft)
  • Plastic and metal/tin packaging, drinking cartons (pmd)
  • Paper/cardboard
  • Glass
  • Textiles

All remaining trash is residual waste.
