Sorting stations and recycling centres

Proper waste separation is good for the environment, and benefits you too. The less residual waste you have left, the fewer residual waste bags you need to buy. You can dispose of separated waste at any milieuperron (sorting station). Large household waste items can be taken to one of our four regional milieuparken (recycling centres). This page tells you what to do with each type of waste. 

Sorting waste

You can dispose of the following types of waste at every milieuperron (sorting station):

  • Plastic and metal packages and drink cartons (PMD)
  • Glass (clear and coloured)
  • Paper and cardboard
  • Baby nappies and incontinence pads

We collect organic waste (kitchen and garden waste) weekly and free of charge. Residual waste bags are collected once per two weeks.

You can take other types of waste to one of our milieuparken (recycling centres). You will be able to dispose of most of it for free. For some types of waste you will be charged. Please sort your waste beforehand at home. This allows our staff at the milieupark to see what you are dropping off and which charges apply.  

Sorting stations

Check the Milieu App for milieuperrons (sorting stations) near you. Or view the drop-down menu 'sorting station locations' at the bottom of this page.

  • Only use the sorting stations if you are a Maastricht City resident.
  • Dispose of your waste at milieuperrons between 7.00 am and 10.00 pm only.
  • Do not place waste next to or on top of the containers. Go to another sorting station if the container is full, or take your waste back home with you.

Breaking the above rules can cost you money. Camera surveillance may be present at the milieuperrons.

Recycling centres

You can also take your waste to one of Maastricht's milieuparken (recycling centres): Beatrixhaven, Randwyck, Het Rondeel.

Other recycling centres 

With your milieupas (waste disposal pass) and a valid identification document, you can bring your household waste, including bulky waste, to all milieuparken in the municipalities of Maastricht, Meerssen and Valkenburg aan de Geul (GR Geul en Maas) and to the cleaning services Rd4. You will find an overview on and in the Milieu App. So, for example, you can also come to the milieuparken of Rijckholt, Valkenburg aan de Geul en Margraten.

Debit card only

Please note: You can only pay by PIN at the milieuparken.


Asbestos can only be disposed of at the Beatrixhaven milieupark. Strict asbestos rules apply. Asbestos and asbestos-like material must be presented double wrapped in sheets or sturdy plastic film (at least 0.2 mm thick). You can buy this type of film at DIY, hardware and farm supply shops.


You can dispose of waste free of charge at the milieuperrons (sorting stations). Are you taking waste to the milieupark (recycling centre)? Please check the rates and conditions for each type of waste.
