Waste advice

Education, information, counselling

We help you through the jungle of waste separation, give tips on waste avoidance, give lectures or show you our facilities on guided tours, offer campaigns and events on sustainable use. Find out about the many services offered by the waste advisory service here.

Waste counselling is an important part of environmental and resource protection measures. It serves to inform and support citizens on the correct disposal of waste. The aim is to reduce the amount of waste and to promote the recycling of waste.

Bulky waste exchange

ESB bulky waste exchange

Three to four times a year we offer the bulky waste exchange. At this event, we sell things that are too good to throw away.

In this way, we contribute to reuse and thus to the conservation of resources. And the whole thing is for a good cause: all the proceeds go to charitable institutions in Bocholt.

Dates can be found in our calendar of events and in the announcements in the media.

Visits to the recycling centre

We offer guided tours of recyclable materials for groups, school classes and kindergarten groups. We focus on the individual needs and wishes of the respective visitor groups. Please contact us if you are interested. Due to the high number of visitors during regular operations on Fridays and Saturdays, tours of the recycling centre are only possible on request from Mondays to Thursdays.

Tinkering workshop

During the holidays as a holiday activity by appointment only. For school classes on request.

Information stand in the city centre

Between spring and autumn, we offer the opportunity to inform yourself about changing topics at our information stand on St. George's Square. We announce the dates in the local media.

Waste collections

Every spring, we organise a city-wide waste collection to which all groups, associations, neighbourhoods and individuals are cordially invited. In addition, we equip groups with necessary material throughout the year and take care of the collection of the collected waste.

Information materials

We have information material on various key topics. If required, we will put together suitable information for you. The waste calendar is an important part of this. It is available in classic print form as well as in digital and mobile versions.
