We collect waste paper and cardboard door-to-door once a month in cooperation with associations. Please use the Milieu App or the waste calendar to see when we'll collect waste paper and cardboard in your street. You can also take your waste paper and cardboard to a sorting station or recycling centre at any time.
We collect waste paper and cardboard for free. You can also dispose of your waste paper and cardboard at a sorting station or recycling centre.

In the Milieu App you will find a convenient, comprehensive waste sorting guide. A yes/no list shows you what to do with each type of waste .
- Make sure your pieces of paper and cardboard are small enough to fit through the opening of the container
- Make sure the pieces of paper and cardboard are dry and clean, otherwise they belong in the residual waste bag
The Milieu App tells you when we'll collect waste paper and cardboard in your area. Please place the paper and cardboard on the pavement along a public through-road on the day of collection. Put the paper and cardboard in a box so that it cannot be blown away. You can also take your waste paper and cardboard to a sorting station or recycling centre yourself.
If you use your own crate, please note that our staff are not responsible for the loss or breakage of your crate. Make sure your crate is not too big, so that it can be lifted easily.
All magazines can go in the waste paper and cardboard container, except if they are plastic-coated. Plastic-coated paper is not easy to tear. Most magazines can be disposed of normally. Sometimes only the cover is plastic-coated. In that case it belongs in the residual waste bag.
