Ordering or cancelling

Garbage cans can be ordered and cancelled through the Customer Service Department:

  • online (see form below)
  • by phone at T. 58 77 1-1730
  • by returning the form by e-mail to   
  • by returning the form by post to
    City of Differdange
    c/o Customer Service Department
    L-4501 Differdange
  • in person at the Customer Service Department

The dimensions of the different garbage cans are available upon request from the Customer Service Department.

Change of address

In case of a change of address within the municipality, the waste containers must be taken with you to the new address, as the municipality does not guarantee the transfer of waste containers between the two addresses.

If you move out of the municipality or change your address in a residence with a communal garbage can system, the grey and green garbage cans used at the old address cannot be left as they are, but must be cancelled with the relevant department. The blue and brown garbage cans are not usually taken back by the municipality.


Since the municipal waste disposal bill for each three-month period consists of a connection fee (fixed fee) of €46.50 plus the number of times the grey garbage can is actually emptied, remember to sort your waste. The less you use the grey garbage can, the lower your municipal tax bill will be. And the environment will also be grateful.

Diff App: Never forget to take out your garbage again

You can subscribe to the section „déchets“ in our Diff App. By entering your street name when you subscribe, you will receive a notification on your phone the day before the waste collection service comes. That way, you’ll never forget to take out the right garbage can at the right time. The mobile application also allows you to fill out a bulky waste collection form.
