ORACS – Underground Refuse Containers in Archipel

Since 2009 the Municipality of The Hague has been installing underground containers for household refuse (ORACS). On 8 June a contractor will start investigating locations in the Archipel, digging slots in the streets to locate cables, pipes and drains. The slots will be closed immediately to reduce inconvenience to a minimum.  The investigation will take a few months.

After that the Municipality will draw up a draft plan, indicating where the underground containers should be built. An information and participation evening will be organized for which residents will receive an invitation.

Buildings with indoor facilities for the collection of household refuse and companies are not allowed to use the underground containers.
