Frequency

The door-to-door collection of residual waste (grey bins), organic waste (brown bins), paper/cardboard (blue bins) and glass (green bins) is carried out once a week. Blue Valorlux bags are collected once every two weeks.

Instructions

To facilitate the waste collection process, please

  • put your bins out on the pavement before 06:00 on collection day. Collections are made between 6:00 and 14:00.
  • take containers back in as soon as the rubbish truck has passed, unless you have asked for your containers to be cleaned (this must be requested in advance).
  • be careful not to hinder passers-by.
  • shut the container lids properly so that your bins can be emptied without issue.

If found to contain unauthorised items, containers will not be emptied.

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

Taking out and bringing in your bins

VdL bin bags

Only white bin bags marked "Ville de Luxembourg / Sac-poubelle" will be collected as part of the weekly grey bin collections of 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 container. Please be careful not to hinder passers-by. These VdL bin bags are not to be used for recyclable waste or sharps. The service for taking out and bringing in your bins is not available for these bags.

VdL bin bags cost €4.

Valorlux

Blue Valorlux bags are collected once every two weeks.
