Rubbish bags should only be put outside:
- on the correct day : see calendar
- in the correct place: Stored in front of the building but in such a way that it is not blocking entrance to garage or main entrance
- in the correct way: seggregated correctly in the official waste bags.
Make sure you use the right type of bag for the different sorts of rubbish.
There is a glass container in the corner of Sint-Jacobsplein opposite the building.
