Covid-19: impact on waste collections

31/03/2020

Because of the Covid-19 crisis, Bruxelles-Propreté is obliged to extend the measures taken last week, due to an exceptional lack of staff in the collections and cleaning services.

Collections of blue and yellow bags

On Monday 30, Tuesday 31 March and Wednesday 1 April Bruxelles-Propreté will not be able to collect the PMC (blue bags) separately from the white bags in the municipalities where the blue bags are collected on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays respectively.

Likewise, the yellow bags will not be collected on Wednesday 1, Thursday 2 and Friday 3 April from residents whose yellow bags are collected on Wednesdays, Thursdays or Fridays respectively.

Therefore, Bruxelles-Propreté invites the inhabitants, who can do it, not to take out their selective waste PMC - Paper/Cardboard packaging.

These residents will be able to put out their blue and yellow bags for collection, on the right collection days for these bags as soon as the service is functional again.

Reducing their bulk will make it easier to keep waste at home: the cardboard boxes must be folded and stacked, and the papers kept flat (not crumpled). Similarly, plastic bottles and drink cartons should be flattened and sealed with their own caps.

For public health reasons, teams will exceptionally collect all the waste fractions available on their tour.

To facilitate the work of the collection teams, it is paramount to abide by the usual rules:

- Take out your bags on the right day at the right time (more information on www.bruxelles-proprete.be).

- Close the bags tightly

- Place the bags along the facade.

- Do not exceed 15 kg per bag.

Collections of the green and orange bags

Garden waste (green bags) and food waste (orange bags) are collected at the usual times.

Collections of bulky items at home

This service (upon telephone reservation) is maintained.

Attention! The opening hours of the Call Center (0800/981 81) has had to be adapted: Monday to Friday from 8.30 am to 4.00 pm.

Emptying of containers and glass banks

Blue (PMC packaging), yellow (paper-cardboard), green (glass) and grey (residual waste) containers in apartment buildings, as well as underground containers and glass banks are emptied.

Covid-19: impact on collections

29/03/2020

Bruxelles-Propreté is obliged to take further measures due to an exceptional shortage of staff in the collection and cleaning services linked to the Covid-19 crisis. As a result of instructions from the Federal Government and the precautionary measures taken by front-line doctors, the number of patients recorded in recent days has quadrupled in the operational services of Brussels-Cleanliness.
 
Collection of blue bags 
Bruxelles-Propreté is not in a position on Monday 30 March to collect blue bags separately from white bags in the communes where blue bags are collected on Mondays. 
For these reasons, Bruxelles-Propreté invites residents who are able to do so not to take out their blue bags (PMC packaging). 
These inhabitants will be able to present their blue bags for collection as soon as the service is fully restored.
To make it easier to keep them at home by reducing their bulk, plastic bottles and drink cartons must be flattened and resealed with their caps.
 
For public health reasons, teams will exceptionally collect all the waste fractions present on their rounds.
 
Brussels-Propreté will make a new communication on Monday 30 March to inform the population of the consequences of the evolution of the Covid-19 crisis on its services.

Covid-19: impact on the collections

26/03/2020

Bruxelles-Propreté is obliged to take more measures because of an exceptional shortage of workforce available for the collections and street cleaning services due to to the Covid-19 crisis. Following the instructions from the Federal Government and the precautionary measures taken by front-line doctors, the number of patients recorded in the last few days has quadrupled in our operational services.

Collections of blue and white bags

On Thursday 26 and Friday 27 March Brussels-Propreté is unable to collect the paper and cardboard (yellow bags) separately from the white bags in the municipalities where the yellow bags are collected on those two days.

Likewise, the blue bags will not be collected on Monday 30 March from the inhabitants whose blue bags are collected on Monday.

This is why Bruxelles-Propreté is asking all inhabitants, who have the possibility to do so, not to take out their Paper/Cardboard - PMC packaging waste. 

These inhabitants will be able to present their yellow and blue bags for collections as soon as the services are fully available again.

To make it easier to keep them at home, think of reducing their size : the cardboard boxes must be folded and piled up, and the papers stored flat (instead of crumpled). Likewise, plastic bottles and drink cartons should be flattened and resealed with their caps.

For public health reasons, our teams will exceptionally collect all the different waste fractions present while touring.
