Easter: changed opening hours and waste collection

Wednesday 17 April 2019

Easter is almost here! Therefore, the municipality of Helmond has changed opening hours and the waste collection vehicles will also come by at a different time than you are used to.


On Good Friday (19 April) and Easter Monday (22 April) all municipal buildings are closed. On these days we will also be unavailable by phone. If you want to report something, you can do so via our digital reporting point.

The evening opening hours of the Stadswinkel will shift from Monday 22 April to Wednesday 24 April. On that day, the Stadswinkel will be open until 7 p.m. and you can only visit us when having an appointment, which you can schedule via our online appointment planner. 

Please note: if you are coming to collect a travel document or driver's license, you can also visit us during the evening opening hours on Wednesday 24 April instead of Monday evening on 22 April. Museum Helmond is open on Good Friday according to the regular opening hours and during Easter from noon to 5 p.m. Read more information on the website of Museum Helmond.
