Westerveld is ‘Dutch champion’ in the collection of organic waste


In no other Dutch municipality was more organic waste per inhabitant collected last year, reports the Central Bureau of Statistics. After Westerveld follow Boekel (231.1 kilos), Boxmeer (230.2 kilos) and Cuijk (230 kilos). De Wolden is just below that with 229 kilos per inhabitant. Last year, the least organic waste per inhabitant was collected in Drenthe in Borger-Odoorn (65.3 kilos).

In large urban municipalities, organic waste is often not collected separately, or only in a limited number of neighborhoods. For example, less than 1 kilo per inhabitant is collected in Amsterdam. According to the researchers, it also plays a role that residents of sparsely populated areas produce more organic waste because they often have larger gardens.


Down old paper

Statistics Netherlands also notes that the Dutch produce less and less waste paper. Last year, municipalities collected an average of 493 kilos of household waste per inhabitant. That is one kilo less than in 2018.

In Drenthe, Westerveld is also at the top when it comes to the amount of waste paper collected per inhabitant (87.3 kilos). De Wolden is again number two (80.7 kilos). In the municipality of Coevorden, the least waste paper was collected in our province in 2019 (47.1 kilos).


Total household waste

Coevorden leads the list of Drenthe municipalities with the largest total amount of household waste collected. In 2019, 825.2 kilos per inhabitant was collected there. Westerveld (765.6 kilos) and De Wolden (729 kilos) follow. The municipality of Tynaarlo is at the bottom of this list (432.4 kilos).


Most waste is therefore collected in Coevorden. But what actually happens to our waste. Watch it below in this video.
