Covid-19: impact on collections
Please do not put out your yellow and blue bags
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
Bruxelles-Propreté will not be able to collect the PMC (blue bags) separately from the white bags.
Therefore, Bruxelles-Propreté invites the inhabitants, who can do it, not to take out their selective waste PMC - Paper/Cardboard packaging.
Bruxelles-Propreté is doing their best to restore these services as soon as possible. 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) have 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.
This local service awaits the inhabitants of Brussels at the usual places and times.
As of Monday, March 23rd,
- Recypark North, South, Humanité and Auderghem are open at the following times:
- Tuesday and Wednesday: 9:00 am - 1:45 pm
- Thursday, Friday and Saturday: 9:00 am - 4:15 pm

Bruxelles-Propreté reminds the inhabitants of Brussels that the Federal Government has limited travel to what is strictly necessary. These restrictions also apply to regional Recyparks: situations of emergency or urgent necessity (e.g. death or relocation).
The following guidelines do apply in the Recyparks:
- Residents must show their identity card to the attendant on their own initiative.
- They have to open the trunk of their car themselves
- They must maintain a safety distance (minimum 1.5m).
The cleaning services carry out their missions in the streets, depending on the available personnel.
Commercial service - Brussels-Propreté Pro
The sales department continues to fulfil its obligations under the commercial contracts concluded with its customers.
Brussels-Propreté would like to thank the residents of Brussels for respecting these instructions and for their commitment as citizens.
