In the coming period, there will be changes around waste collection in Hardinxveld-Giessendam, Gorinchem, Vijfheerenlanden and Molenlanden. Together with the municipalities, we want to encourage and help all residents to dispose of less residual waste and separate (even) better. What will change for you depends on your living situation. The changes will be implemented step by step in each municipality. We will start in the municipality of Hardinxveld-Giessendam.

If you live in the built-up area of Hardinxveld-Giessendam, we will send you a letter this week explaining why we are making these changes and telling you that you will receive the environmental pass in April. After that, we will close the collection containers for residual waste. You can then open the collection containers for residual waste in your municipality with this pass. An important change that will also help us combat waste tourism. If you live in a flat, flat or upstairs flat, you can also use the pass to open the new VGF containers. In May, it will be Gorinchem's turn. This will be followed by Vijfheerenlanden and finally Molenlanden.


We can imagine that, like many other residents, you have questions about the changes. This is understandable. That is why you will find more information and answers to frequently asked questions on our website. Go to
