From surgical scissors and urinary tubes, to pharmacy bottles, X-ray sheets and uranium -glass. Entirely by chance, volunteer Edward stumbled upon a 100-year-old dumping site of hospital waste, in the waters of the Zijl River. Now watch some of the objects 24/7 in the windows of the bridge house on Mare Bridge.
The complete story of 'the waste dump in 100 objects can be seen at: degrachtwacht.nl/afvaldump
Take a look through the windows of our bridge operator's house and learn all about the plastic in the canals and our special urban nature. From stuffed animals and canal beasts on ethanol; but also our best treasures and weirdest finds of plastic pollution encountered during our clean-ups. Throughout the year, collection pieces are exhibited in various 'window exhibitions'. You can visit them for free, from outside, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Admission is free, but donations are always welcome.
Nature in times of corona
A fish caught in a corona glove and the first of the many thousands of mouthguards we had to fish out of the canal last year, are some of the masterpieces that will be on display in the coming months. The exhibition 'Nature in times of corona' runs until the end of November 2021.
