Public holiday changes

If your household waste or bulky refuse is usually picked up on a Friday or Monday, it is likely that it will picked up on an alternative day around the holidays. On public holidays there are no collections. If your collection day falls on a holiday, check with your City District for the replacement collection date.

Street parking is free throughout most of Amsterdam on public holidays. However, this is only the case in the Centre District of Amsterdam on King's Day - on other public holidays, payment is required between midday and midnight (or 04:00, as on a Sunday). In the District of Zuidoost payment is required for parking on holidays between 12:00 and 21:00; while parking around the NDSM Wharf in Noord is payable between 09:00 and 23:00.
