Omroep Flevoland – News – Inhabitants NOP cause significantly more organic waste than Almers


Inhabitants of the Noordoostpolder dispose of an average of more than three times as much organic waste per person as Almers. This is evident from figures from Statistics Netherlands on waste collection in 2019. In Almere, this involves an average of just over 42 kilos of organic waste per person. In the Noordoostpolder, more than 150 kilos per person was thrown away last year.

According to Statistics Netherlands, the large differences in figures are partly due to the fact that there are more apartment buildings in cities like Almere. People who live in a flat often have no garden and therefore less green waste.

Dronten is also on the high side compared to the other Flevoland municipalities: almost 138 kilos per person were thrown there. Seaweeds threw an average of nearly 98 kilos of green waste per person. Lelystad residents were slightly below this with almost 90 kilos per person. The least organic waste was collected in Urk: last year this amounted to almost 35 kilos on average per person.

Collection of waste paper is closer together
Statistics Netherlands has also published figures on the number of kilos of waste paper collected in the municipalities. In addition, the Flevoland municipalities differ less from each other. In the Noordoostpolder, an average of more than 57 kilos of paper was thrown away per person. Zeewolde follows with just over 55 kilos. Dront residents threw an average of just over 50 kilos of paper away last year, Lelystad residents just a little less. Urk is also at the bottom of waste paper with an average of 34 kilos per person. Almere is in the middle bracket of Flevoland, with an average of almost 46 kilos per person.
