Recycling platforms

In Maastricht there are several 'milieuperrons'. These are waste recycling platforms with underground containers where you can dispose of the following separated waste for free. 

Separate your waste and deposit for free

If you separate your waste, you can dispose it for free at the many recycling platforms in the city. Visit the recycling platforms map or download the Milieu App to see the recycling platforms near you. (The Milieu App provides information in Dutch or English, depending on the language settings of your device)

Waste you can deposit at recycling platforms

  • paper and cardboard
  • white and coloured glass
  • plastic and metal packages and drink cartons (PMD)

Other types of waste you can bring to recycling centres or 'milieuparken'.


  • The recycling platforms are only for residents of the municipality of Maastricht
  • You may only use the recycling platform between 07.00 and 22.00h
  • Do not put waste next to or on the containers. Go to another recycling platform or take your garbage back home if the container is full.

Breaking these rules can cost you money. There is camera surveillance at the recycling platforms.
