Nevertheless, it is very busy at a number of Flemish recycling centres. Our colleague Arne De Jaegere reports that around 20 cars were queueing up outside the recycling centre at Aalst in East Flanders before it opened on Tuesday morning (photo below).
Elsewhere, it was also very busy. Police in the Limburg city of Hasselt report that “It is very busy at the various recycling parks in or area. There are particularly long queues at Hasselt and Zonhoven” There locals were asked not to go to the recycling centres any more on Tuesday morning.
A spokesperson told VRT News that "During the next few days too we are asking people only visit the recycling centres if it is absolutely necessary. This we help ensure that social distancing is maintained”.
