Trimmings collection: 2 times a year branch route

Twice a year, we collect your prunings free of charge: in spring and in autumn. We schedule special dates for the branch route. You can have your prunings collected with the planned branch route if you have made an appointment for this. You can find these dates in The Waardlanden app or in the appointment form on our website

You can offer prunings at one of the environmental centres or have it collected.

How to offer?

  • Participation in the branch route is possible only if you have made a collection appointment in advance.
  • Place the prunings bundled at the edge of the public road by 7.30 am on the agreed day.
  • Make manageable bundles that our drivers can easily lift.
  • The bundles are up to 1.25 metres long and weigh 25 kilos.
  • The thickness of the branches is maximum one wrist thickness; no stumps.
  • Do not offer boxes or bags of prunings or other garden waste.
  • Maximum 2 m³ per provider.

Tree stumps, grass sods with attached soil, wooden poles and fence material are not prunings. You cannot offer these for the branch route.
