Every house should have a waste pass (afvalpas). This pass allows you to make use of any of the 4 rubbish tips (milieuparken) around Maastricht, where you can dispose of things you no longer want. If your house does not have a waste pass, or it is lost or missing, you can apply for a new one. First of all, find out which person in your house pays for the waste collection tax (afvalstoffenheffing). This is the person who should apply for the afvalpas. They can do this online by logging in using their DigiD and following the instructions. If you are unsure who pays for the waste collection tax in your house, you can find out by calling the BsGW in Roermond on 088 – 8420420. They will tell you who should apply for the afvalpas. If you change address, leave the afvalpas behind for the new residents to use. Your new address should have its own pass.
Costs of waste disposal vary depending on what it is and how much you are trying to get rid of. However, unless you are trying to get rid of large, bulky amounts of household waste you should not have to pay too much. For a full overview of the costs of disposal, download a waste-disposal calendar, which lists the prices of disposal at the bottom (only in Dutch).
