Entry of the New Blue Bag

This month of January marks a new stage for sorting in the Brussels Region.

From now on, the vast majority of plastic packaging is accepted in the New Blue Bag and no longer only plastic bottles and vials. Sorting plastic packaging is therefore becoming easier for the people of Brussels. Yoghurt pots, butter bowls, cheese trays and plastic bags or films are some of the packaging that is now accepted in the blue bag.

The additional annual weight of plastic packaging to be placed in the New Blue Bag is estimated at 8 kg per capita. It is important to note that there is no change for metal packaging and beverage cartons. Sorting instructions for this New Blue Bag are now available on: www.lenouveausacbleu.be

The collection times for blue bags remain the same. And the people of Brussels can continue to use their stock of blue bags. An explanatory box will be distributed to all Brussels households as of Monday 25 January. Prevention is given pride of place by taking simple steps to reduce the production of packaging.

Sorting is good, Zero Waste is even better! More info on https://environnement.brussels/thematiques/zero-dechet-0
