The agents wish you a happy new year

27/11/2019

At the end of each year, the Brussels-Cleanliness agents present their wishes to the population. The Brussels-Cleanliness Directorate points out that Brussels residents determine the best way in which they wish to express their sympathy for the work of the agents.
 
It should also be remembered that there are impostors who pretend to be Brussels-Cleanliness agents. 
To recognize those who, in rain, snow or sunshine, pick up the rubbish bags of the people of Brussels from those who would try to abuse your trust, here is what you need to know:
 
  • The staff of the Brussels-Cleanliness Agency are authorised to present their wishes to the inhabitants of the Brussels region from 30/11/2019 to 20/12/2019 inclusive, and must strictly adhere to this period of time. The population should therefore not welcome people who arrive outside this period.
  • In order to be identified, Brussels-Cleanliness agents will be provided with a copy of their timekeeping badge and will receive a leaflet to be given to the inhabitants. This leaflet, which was made available to our teams on 29/11/2019, informs the inhabitants that Brussels-Cleanliness will celebrate its 30th anniversary in 2020.
  • Only Brussels-Cleanliness agents will be able to present their timekeeping badge and will have this leaflet.
 
Follow these few recommendations, in order to receive, if you wish, the wishes of those who work every day to make our Region more beautiful.
 
In case of problems, do not hesitate to contact the Brussels Cleanliness Complaints Department on 0800/981 81 or via info@arp-gan.be

Low collection disruptions

26/11/2019

In order to calm the situation and guarantee service to the population, the Directorate General of Brussels-Cleanliness has decided to withdraw the point relating to the development of the "finished finish" from the social consultation of 5 December next. The General Directorate will make new proposals to reduce the number of work accidents in a broader context than the "finished finish".
 
This decision made it possible to defuse the dissatisfaction actions of the collection teams, the majority of which resumed work on Tuesday, November 26.
 
Last week's grumbling affected white bag collections, where 12% of tours were not completed and yellow bags, where 19% of tours were not completed. Blue bag tours have all been completed. The orange and green bag collections were not affected by this movement of dissatisfaction.
 
The collections for this Monday, November 25, were not fully secured. The situation has improved significantly on Tuesday, November 26.
 
The bags left on the road will be collected this week.
 
The Directorate General of Brussels-Cleanliness asks the inhabitants to accept all its apologies for these disruptions beyond its control.

Disruptions in bagged collections this Wednesday, November 20, 2019

20/11/2019

Due to a protest movement by workers in the three collection sectors, bag collections were disrupted on Wednesday, November 20, 2019. In concrete terms, the teams have decided to slow down the pace of work. This did not allow them to complete the collection rounds during working hours.
 
This dissatisfaction follows the proposal of the Brussels-Cleanliness Directorate General to consult with workers' representatives on the adaptation of the finished finish. This point was put to social consultation on 5 December next.
 
The objective of the General Directorate's proposal is twofold:
 
Launch a reflection on the strategy to be implemented to reduce the number of workplace accidents, the psycho-social burden and, more generally, to protect the health of workers from door-to-door collection.
Make collection teams aware of the need to take better account of other road users and the public space in general.
Indeed, while the pace of work is high due to the will of the teams, it has continued to increase due to the difficulties related to mobility in recent years and to the increase in the number of kilometres travelled by shippers following the 2017 collection reform.
 
The collections were more comprehensive than in previous days. The information below therefore only concerns municipalities where some of the bags have not been collected.
 
  • Brussels (Belliard): 20% of blue bags were not collected.
  • Saint-Josse: 10% of the white bags were not collected.
  • Schaerbeek: 30% of white bags and 15% of blue bags were not collected.
  • Brussels-Cleanliness asks residents whose bags have not been collected to bring them in and represent them at the following collections: 
 
  • White bags: Saturday, November 23rd.
  • Blue bags: Wednesday, November 27.
 
The Directorate General of Brussels-Cleanliness asks the inhabitants to accept all its apologies for these disruptions.
