Waste collection

Collection and disposal

Day after day and in all weathers, our orange fleet is on the road for you. Around 10,000 bins are emptied by our employees every day. There is hardly a public service that people in Bocholt have to deal with more often than refuse collection. Find out more here about the services provided by ESB and how you can contribute to smooth processes.
