Days

The curbside collection of mixed residual waste (grey bins), organic waste (brown bins), paper/cardboard (blue bins) and glass (green bins) is carried out weekly.

Instructions

To facilitate the waste collection process, please

  • put your bins out on the pavement before 6:00 on collection day. Collections are made between 6:00 and 14:00.
  • take bins back in as soon as the waste collection vehicle has passed, unless you have asked for your bins to be cleaned (this must be requested in advance).
  • do not hinder passersby.
  • shut the bin lids properly so that your bins can be emptied without issue.

Bins will not be emptied if found to contain unauthorised items.

Complaints and notifications can be made before midday on working days by calling us at 4796-3640.

VdL bin bags

White bin bags marked "Ville de Luxembourg / Sac-poubelle" are the only bags that will be collected during the weekly collection of the black bins for mixed residual waste. These bags must be put out onto the pavement before 6:00 and are solely for one-off collections of excess refuse that will not fit into your full bin. Please be careful not to hinder passers-by. These VdL bin bags are not to be used for recyclable waste or sharps. Our assisted collection service is not available for these bags.

VdL bin bags cost €5.

Valorlux

The blue Valorlux bags are collected every two weeks.
