What is allowed in my bulky waste container?
Our bulky waste containers are of one the most popular waste containers we offer. But what exactly is allowed in these containers? In other words, what is covered by bulky waste? We explain it to you in detail below.
Bulky waste is simply everything that is bigger than what fits in a garbage bag. All household waste that is too large and heavy for the usual garbage bag is classified under this category. Examples of bulky waste are carpeting (up to 10% of the container), furniture, doors or windows. But also think of: lampshades, curtains, laminate, tiles and awnings.
Below you will find waste types that well fall under bulky waste.
- Paper and / or cardboard
- Glass (think windows or bottle glass, not ceramic glass)
- Sand and/or soil (maximum 10%)
What is not allowed in a bulky waste container?
It is often helpful to know what is not allowed in a bulky waste container to avoid any bills later. For example, we often get the question: is laminate bulky waste? Laminate is wood waste and may be placed in both a wood container and a bulk waste container. We also often get the question whether mattresses can be placed in a bulky waste container. The answer to this is no, but you can hand them in at the municipal waste site free of charge.
