Residents of Eindhoven can also have their bulk household waste picked up at home. For this, you use a Big Bag or sticker. The stickers are intended for collecting large pieces of furniture, such as an old sofa or bed (one sticker per item). The Big Bags are suitable for almost all types of bulk waste.
Bulk waste or bulk household waste is waste that is too big or too heavy for a household refuse bag or (underground) container. Consider, for example, household goods, mattresses, old carpeting or broken (garden) furniture.
What is NOT allowed in a Big Bag:
- chemical waste,
- car tires,
- sharp glass and materials containing asbestos such as corrugated sheets,
- old sewage and heating pipes,
- old stovepipes,
- bathroom sheeting.
Due to health risks for the environment. You can dispose of these separately at the waste recycling point.
A maximum total weight of 1000 kg applies to both the Big Bag and loose, bulk waste.
