Bulky household waste is any waste that is too large or too heavy to be collected by the usual household waste collection service. You can take this type of waste to the waste collection station or have it collected for a fee.
Waste collection station
If you are a resident of Amstelveen, you can drop off larger amounts of household waste and household waste that must be collected separately – including household appliances, paint, batteries, oil and special waste, such as asbestos – at the waste collection station (Afvalbrengstation). Every month, you are allowed to drop off 1m³ building-related waste free of charge. This includes soil, stone, glass, kitchen cabinets, countertops and other debris produced when you are carrying out building work on houses or gardens.
Do you want to drop off more than 1m³ building waste? The amount of building waste is determined by one of the staff at the waste collection station before the waste can be dumped. The rates can be found on the page Tarieventabel (in Dutch). The waste collection station only accept payment by card.
Residents of other municipalities cannot take their waste to the waste collection station and should take their waste elsewhere. Staff at the waste collection station may ask you for identification. This means that you should make sure that you have a valid ID (waste card (Afvalpas), driving license, passport or identity card) with you. If your ID has not been issued by the municipality of Amstelveen, you must prove that you do live in Amstelveen.
