Don't place the bags where they are a hindrance or in the way for others and order collection as soon as you have filled the bag.
Bags with combustible waste must not be placed against the wall of a house because of fire risk.
It is very important that the bag is not placed under a tram cable or other power cable.
Fire service advice about the use of "container-bags"
Conventional opened containers should be placed at least five meters from buildings.
When using the bag people must know that the bag is also flammable, so the whole thing can go up in flames.
People need to plan the use of the bag. The Fire Department urges people not to fill up with waste before having placed the bag correctly.
The bags must not be left unattended, particularly overnight.
if it is left overnight, it should be moved well away from the building, at least five meters. Moreover, one must think about accessibility for the fire brigade and others in the city.
