The reform of waste collection in Brussels has already had a difficult start with thousands of waste bags left on the street. In La Capitale mayor of Etterbeek, Vincent De Wolf (MR), is now also complaining loudly.
“It’s hard to do worse,” said La Capitale. “I understand the need for reform and organic sorting, but I’m still looking for the benefits of this absurd reform. Etterbeek is a forgotten and massacred municipality!”
De Wolf denounces, among other things, the “incomprehensible communication” of Net Brussels and the complicated division of his municipality into different collection zones. “Etterbeek has the most complex distribution of the 19 municipalities and is the only municipality where all collection times have changed.”
The result is comparable to what the municipalities of Evere and Sint-Pieters-Woluwe, among others, have already sued: garbage bags that remain everywhere. The mayor now wants to organize a door-to-door campaign to explain the new situation and the changes to his residents. He also said that without changes on September 19, no fines will be handed out for errors against the waste calendar. “That wouldn’t be legit in this chaos.”
