Curbside collection (CC) means that you drop off your packaging for recycling close to your home. The packaging is then picked up by a waste management contractor who transports the material onwards for recycling. Curbside collection serves as a complement to recycling stations and makes it easier for you to sort your packaging because it is closer to your home.
We collect and take care of your property’s packaging.
- Curbside collections for tenants
- More packaging is sorted when collection is provided
- We subsidize some of the cost
- We recycle the packaging in an environmentally sound manner
How recycling works
When tenants sort their packaging, they are giving milk cartons, shampoo bottles, sardine cans and glass bottles a new lease of life. See how recycling works and how property owners and tenant-owner associations play a key role.

Frequently asked questions
It’s up to your property owner or tenant-owner association to decide whether curbside collection should be introduced in an apartment building. Contact your property owner or tenant-owner association. They can engage a contractor to pick up household packaging. Curbside collection is introduced by entering into an agreement with a waste management contractor. If you fill out the registration of interest form for property owners, one of our contractors will contact you.
If we want to achieve the government’s recycling targets, more households need to sort more of their packaging for recycling. Curbside collection improves accessibility and provides a higher level of service. Quite simply, curbside collection makes it easier to send packaging for recycling. Sampling shows that packaging accounts for some 30% of all household waste.
