We collect reusable books, electronics, toys and textiles. If there are additional options available for your neighbourhood, they will be shown in the app.
The maximum size per box/bag is 48 x 32 x 36 cm (a standard moving box). The maximum weight per package is 10 kg.
If the items are still in good condition, they will be reused through our network of sustainable partners. These are, for example, local thrift stores and parties such as Boekenbalie.
If it turns out that the items can no longer be reused, we will ensure that they are properly recycled. The materials from which the items are made will then be reused as raw materials. This is how we protect the environment.
You can make use of our service an unlimited number of times. However, for environmental reasons, it is advisable to collect as many items as possible at once and offer them at the same time.
This way, we reduce our ecological footprint by reducing the number of journeys.
Our service is currently available in:
- Capelle aan den IJssel
- Krimpen aan den IJssel
- Den Haag - Loosduinen

Get rid of your pre-loved items for free with the Byewaste pick-up service:
Where you have to leave the items on the day of the collection depends on your area and house type. Please review the instructions for your place of residence to make sure that the pick-up goes smoothly.
We prefer the following packaging:
- Textiles: plastic bags
- Books: sturdy boxes
- Electronics and toys: boxes, crates or bags
Close the package properly and make sure that it is no larger than 48 x 32 x 36 cm (a standard moving box) or heavier than 10 kg.
TIP: Reuse old moving boxes, mail boxes, shopping bags or ask the supermarket if they have any packaging that you can use.
A printable version of our stickers can be found here. However, you can also have your belongings picked up without stickers.
In this case, please write "Byewaste" and the category (textile, electronics or mix) on a piece of paper and attach it to the package.
If your pick-up has not been cancelled in advance by the collector, we will still drive by your house during the reserved timeslot.
In this case, please put your belongings in a water-resistant box or bag, so that they do not get wet.
Due to the safety measures of our collection partners, they are not allowed to carry heavy items down the stairs. In this case, they are not insured for accidents.
Please make sure that someone is present on the collection day to help carry the items, or bring them down before the chosen timeslot in case there is no elevator in the building.
We are sorry to hear that your pick-up did not go well!
Please review the instructions once more to make sure that you followed the right steps. If this is the case, you can report the incident to our customer service via email@example.com.
We are sorry to hear that you are having trouble using our app!
Please send us an email with a detailed description of the problem and the device you are using (e.g. Samsung Galaxy S23). Then we will try our best to help you.
We cancel mattress pick-up appointments in advance if heavy rain is expected. This is because mattresses can no longer be recycled if they get wet. In this case, you can make a new appointment to have the mattress picked up at a later time.
If the appointment has not been cancelled but it does rain on the collection day, we ask you to keep the mattress inside. In this case, our collector will ring the doorbell.
You can support us by sharing our service with your neighbours, family and friends or writing a review on Trustpilot. This way, we can increase our number of users and the amount of items saved from the trash!
You can also donate to our cause. Any amount is welcome! As we are a free service, we are partly dependent on donations of our users to cover the costs of logistics and storage.
We like you too!
