Underground containers Bovenbuurt

Where will the underground containers be placed in the Bovenbuurt?

The planned locations of the underground containers are situated in the following streets (please also see the map below):

  1. Kolkakkerweg parking lot near apartment numbers 13-19.
  2. Kolkakkerweg parking lot near apartment numbers 25-27.
  3. Eykmanstraat near apartment numbers 8-14.
  4. Van ’t Hoffstraat near apartment numbers 11-17.
  5. Lorentzstraat at the intersection with Van de Waalstraat.
  6. Kamerlingh Onnesstraat near number 7 (Leger de Heils shop).
  7. Nobelweg near the football pitch.

How are the locations for the underground containers chosen?

Finding a suitable spot is not easy. In looking for a suitable spot, we considered the following aspects:

  • proximity to the residents, also for people who are less mobile
  • accessibility for the garbage trucks
  • traffic safety
  • underground cables, pipes, sewage system
  • trees, both the crown and the roots of trees
  • preserving as many parking spaces as possible
  •  preserving the open greenery and making sure the spot is well-lit

For more information, you can also refer to the 2022 Policy rules for underground non-recyclable containers in Wageningen.

How do I open the underground containers for non-recyclable waste?

You can open the underground containers free of charge with your waste pass. You should have already received your waste pass by now. This is the same pass you use for the waste dump station. In June, you will also receive a letter that explains the use of the waste pass. If you still do not have a waste pass, you can submit a one-time request for the waste pass free of charge at the ACV by stating “containers Bovenbuurt”. This will be possible for up to ultimately one month after the installation of the underground containers. After that, a new waste pass will cost €15.

When will the underground containers be placed?

We plan to place the underground containers in early July 2023.
