Useful information

Businesses with an address in Luxembourg City or the municipality of Strassen may access the Recycling Centre under certain conditions (by decision of the College of the Mayor and Aldermen of the City of Luxembourg on 25 April 2014).

To do so, download the "Request for access to the Luxembourg City Recycling Centre" form below or ask the Service Hygiène (Sanitation Department) to provide you with the form. Please return the form, duly completed and signed, either by email (hygiene@vdl.lu), fax (45 39 58) or post to: Service Hygiène de la Ville de Luxembourg, 48, Route d’Arlon L-1140 Luxembourg.

As soon as your request has been received, you will be contacted by a representative of the Service Hygiène who will come to your business premises to establish which waste disposal solution best suits to your needs.

Recycling rules for businesses

The maximum daily amount of waste that can be disposed of free of charge is 1 m of recyclable materials or 30 litres of liquids.

A non-transferable card is issued for each business address. If applicable, you must list all of your company's business addresses on the form.

When going to the Recycling Centre, you must bring your non-transferable card with you (access is limited to once per day).

Access is granted once you receive your non-transferable card, which is issued against notice of receipt.

The Service Hygiène reserves the right to revoke access to the Recycling Centre in the event of failure to comply with these rules.

The Service Hygiène wishes to remind you that businesses can only access the Recycling Centre from Tuesday to Friday inclusive. Mondays and Saturdays are reserved for private individuals.

rue du Stade
L-2547 Luxembourg

Opening hours

The Recycling Centre is open to businesses from Tuesday to Friday

7:00–19:30 Last entry is at 19:15.

Only clean, sorted waste can be recycled. All waste must therefore be sorted in advance and separated, as far as possible, from non-recyclable waste. Items to be recycled must be separated into:

  • recyclable material, sorted by waste type; and
  • hazardous substances for disposal by SuperDrecksKëscht.

The City's Recycling Centre accepts small quantities of bulky waste (under 1 m3 in volume).

  • As parking is limited, the transportation of waste materials by trailer, van, lorry, tow truck or any similar vehicle is only authorised if parking spaces are available. If there are no free parking spaces, access may be denied.
  • Any non-recyclable waste brought to the Recycling Centre must be removed immediately.

The full set of rules for using the Recycling Centre are detailed in its internal rules and regulations:
