Warning re improper garbage disposal


So, yesterday I received in the mail a warning from the Commune of Ixelles, claiming that I have not respected the rules regarding putting out the garbage. (infraction au Reglement general de Police. Avertissement.) And if it happens again, I will be subject to 'une procedure d' amende administrative' - which I guess would be a hefty fine.
I am really surprised at this, because I am extremely fastidious about following the garbage rules, mainly because I detest the amount of random trash out on the streets here that seems to stem from this random system. How does this happen? Do I have any recourse?


Go to the Ixelles Borough Hall and ask.

If you put your bags out according to the rules in respect of both content of the bag and day/Hours they can be put outside, you will not have any problems.

No, you don't have any recourse against a warning for doing things wrong. Yes, you'd be able to appeal if you were fined.
