Jekerkwartier Noord

The waste collection test is starting on 1 June 2017! We started preparing for this at the end of 2016, when residents' panels developed two different variants which neighbourhood residents were able to choose from. We will be test running the chosen variant for six months from 1 June. Residents will be receiving a starter pack (letter plus waste collection calendar) around 18 May 2017.  

Waste Collection Test 1 June – 30 November 2017

The waste collection process in Jekerkwartier (north) will change as follows:

1.       Fruit and vegetable waste is to be disposed of in a separate 10-litre or 25-litre container, which the municipality will collect from your home once a week. Organic garden waste must be taken to the organic garden waste containers in the neighbourhood.

2.       Nappies and incontinence products must be disposed of in a 10-litre or 25-litre nappy container which the municipality will collect from your home twice a week.

3.       Textiles and small electric devices must be taken to the recycling point (underground container) on Maasboulevard-Kennedybrug.

4.       Bulky household waste  must be disposed of in the same way as always (i.e. by taking it to a recycling centre or by calling the municipality and paying for it to be collected at your home address).

5.       Residual waste must be disposed of in a municipal residual waste bag which the municipality will collect from your home once every two weeks. 

Your experience matters!

We will be working with a sounding board of residents during the test to discuss the new collection system. Do you want to share your experiences with us and be a part of this sounding board? You can sign up by e-mailing afvalloos@maastricht.nl or calling 14 043.

It may take a while to get used to the new arrangement. However, we will do our best to make sure the transition is as quick and easy as possible.
