On this page you will find the adjusted services of the City of Amstelveen. This results from the measures taken by the government to prevent the spreading of the coronavirus.
Adjusted services due to the holidays
The Town Hall is closed on the following days:
- Monday 1 June, Pentecost
Changed waste collection around holidays
Around the holidays in May (Pentecost), the municipality can empty your mini-containers with waste on a different day than usual. Check your 2020 paper waste calendar, on Mijnafvalwijzer.nl or the Afvalwijzer app to see if there is a change in the schedule for your containers.
Adjusted services due to the coronavirus
The municipality of Amstelveen can only be reached digitally and by telephone. The municipality asks you to NOT visit the town hall. Only in situations considered urgent by the city, you can make an appointment by telephone to visit us, provided you have no symptoms of flu.
Many products and services can be requested digitally. For example, products and services related to parking, Certificate of Conduct, extracts and notification of relocation. If you need help with this, you can contact the municipality by telephone: (020) 540 49 11. You can also email the city at: firstname.lastname@example.org.

Application for a travel document or driving licence
An appointment for the renewal of a travel document or driving licence can only be made if it expires within two weeks. If the expiry date is later in the year, the document cannot be renewed at short notice and we will schedule an appointment for a later date. This new (temporary) procedure is also communicated in the reminder letter you receive for the renewal of your travel document or driving licence. The adjustment is needed in order to comply with the national corona measures.
An appointment can only be made by telephone via (020) 540 49 11.
Please contact the Amstelveen desk for questions about care, welfare, income support and youth assistance. We can be reached by telephone on (020) 540 49 11 or by e-mail: email@example.com. Would you please include your telephone number in your e-mail? This way, we can help you more quickly. The waiting time on the telephone is longer than usual. The City kindly asks for your understanding.
The government cabinet announced that all events subject to a permit and notification requirement will be prohibited until 1 September 2020, including events involving fewer than 100 persons. This means that events and festivities will not be held until that time. Read more about the measures regarding events.
Play farm Elsenhove
Also play farm Elsenhove will be closed until 19 May 2020. Ofcourse in the meantime the animals will be well taken care of.
Belevingscentrum Amstelveen InZicht
Belevingscentrum Amstelveen InZicht will be closed until 19 May 2020. Further information can be found on the website of Amstelveen Inzicht.
The waste-disposal station at the Legmeer business park is open, although it is busy. That is why we ask you to save up your (bulky) waste and only take it away when you have a fully loaded car. This will reduce the number of visitors and therefore the risk of an infection by the coronavirus.
Inspection of documents in the city hall temporarily not possible
During the period when the restrictive measures are applicable, no documents are available for inspection in the city hall. Decisions that are subject to a duty of inspection, such as draft zoning plans or draft permits, can temporarily only be viewed online. Reference to the relevant website is included in the official publication of the specific decision. If you are unable to view documents online, you can contact the city by telephone on (020) 540 49 11.
The city publishes announcements of official notifications of, among other things, permits, regulations and spatial plans on the website Overheid.nl. On the page Overuwbuurt, you will receive information about decisions that affect your environment. This can be done via an app or by e-mail. You decide in the settings which messages you wish to receive.
Fewer PMD bags drop-off points
Since community centres and libraries are closed, the number of collection points for free PMD bags has been reduced. PMD stands for Plastic, Metal/Cans and Drink cartons. The bags are an extra service provided by the city to be used for the PMD mini-container or in the underground PMD containers. The PMD bags will be available in the coming weeks at the entrance of the waste collection station, the entrance of the city hall and the Bankrasflora school garden at Jeanne d’Arclaan 6.
