From 1 January 2024, waste collection in Meerhoven and the rest of Eindhoven will undergo a major change. From then on, plastic, cans and beverage packaging (PBD) must be disposed of with residual waste. There will also be underground containers for waste paper and cardboard in Meerhoven and in some cases the collection days for waste collection will change.

We have listed the changes for you below.

Plastic, cans and beverage packaging (PBD) must be disposed of as residual waste from January 1, 2024. The residual waste is subsequently sorted by Cure Waste Management and processed separately. The above-ground PBD containers at the Oude/Nieuwe Sliffertsestaat, Waterfont and Sportpark Meerhoven parking lots will be removed soon. No other containers take their place. The two underground PBD containers in Shopping Center Meerhoven will be replaced in the first or second week of January by underground containers for waste paper and cardboard. In other places, underground PBD containers are replaced by underground containers for textiles and/or waste paper and cardboard.

Waste paper and cardboard
Cure Waste Management will stop collecting waste paper and cardboard in places where an underground container for waste paper and cardboard becomes available. As soon as the underground containers for waste paper and cardboard have been installed, Cure Waste Management’s waste calendarwill be adjusted accordingly.

Change in collection days
Other collection days for different types of waste may apply in your area from January 2024. Check the Cure Waste Management waste calendar for the current dates.

Single-family homes and apartments
Residual waste – including plastic, cans and beverage containers (PBD) – is collected from single-family homes in the gray mini container. Vegetable, fruit and garden waste (GFT) in the green mini container and waste paper and cardboard in the blue mini container. On the waste calendar of Cure Waste Management you will find the dates on which residual waste, organic waste and paper are collected. Residents who cannot use a mini container, for example because they live in an apartment complex, have access to one or more underground waste containers. In that case, you put organic waste with the residual waste.

Shopping Center Meerhoven
In the Shopping Center Meerhoven there are various underground containers for the collection of glass, textiles and residual waste. The containers are located opposite the Jumbo, near Lidl, between the Albert Heijn and the Zandbrug and at De Hangar. The current PBD containers will be replaced by underground containers for waste paper and cardboard in the first or second week of January. See map below with the new situation.

Prevent disruptions
Although a compactor has three to four times more capacity than a regular container, that capacity can only be used if the opening of the container is not blocked. For plastic waste, use a (pedal bin) bag of no more than 50 liters. Do not overfill it. A 50 liter bag fits easily in the container and prevents blockages. Do not use the free yellow bags from Veldhoven Municipality. These bags are not suitable and will clog up the container.

Christmas trees collection day
On Saturday, January 13, 2024, residents of the municipality of Eindhoven can hand in their Christmas tree between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. at one of the 33 collection locations in Eindhoven, including the Zandstrand-Zandkasteel (between De Hangar and Echt Welschap) and Sliffertsestraat-Bosfazant locations.

Course dirt
For coarse dirt, you can use the waste recycling center (milieustraat). The waste recycling point are free for residents of Eindhoven on presentation of the city pass. The wastre recycling centers are located at Achtseweg Noord 41 and Lodewijkstraat 9 in Eindhoven.

Reusable items
Het Goed Eindhoven collects your reusable items. You can hand in your goods at the store at Meerakkerweg 2 in Eindhoven. For residents of Eindhoven, Het Goed collects your goods at home for free. You can also contact Kringloopwinkel Stedencontact Bialystok at the Laagstraat in Eindhoven.
