Communication materials

Fost Plus offers a wide variety of communication materials to help you inform residents and raise awareness about the sorting and disposal of household waste, including: 

  • Red rejection stickers for incorrectly sorted PMD bags;
  • Flyers, informative brochures, sorting guides and door hangers which collectors can leave behind with residents who made sorting errors;
  • Postersstickers and signs for waste bins.

All requests must be made through the intermunicipal companies, who can order the material directly from Fost Plus.

 

Household waste collection in your municipality

Fost Plus can help you inform residents about waste collection times, sorting rules, opening hours for container parks, etc, using the following:

  • Waste collection calendar. Fost Plus can help you develop a waste collection calendar for your municipality, in print or online.
  • Recycle! app for smartphones and tablets. Recycle! may well be the waste collection calendar of the future. It provides residents with all the information they need about the waste collections in their street, nearby container parks and collection points, and the sorting rules for PMD, glass, and paper and cardboard.
