You live outside the built-up area or on the edge of the municipality of Vijfheerenlanden, such as in the polder or by the dike, and you now have containers for gft, pmd, paper and a chipped residual waste container. There are changes around waste in the coming period. Together with the municipality, we want to encourage and help residents with less waste and (even) better separation.


Gechipte container voor restafval

New container for your residual waste

You will have received a chipped 240-litre container for your residual waste in 2022. The chip has a unique number linked to your address. Special equipment in our trolleys reads the chip at every emptying. Without the chip, we cannot empty your container. You can have your residual waste container emptied once every four weeks. As a resident of Vijfherenlanden, you do not have to pay separately for this.

Environmental pass for access to environmental centres

In November 2023, you will receive an environmental pass. You will need this from 1 December 2023 to access all our waste disposal points. As a resident of Vijfheerenlanden, there is no need to pay separately for this

We can imagine that, like many other residents, you have concerns and questions about the new waste and resources policy, waste separation and waste charges. This is understandable. That is why we post the answers to frequently asked questions on our website.
