Until 1 January 2020, Eindhoven residents can report fireworks nuisance via the BuitenBeter app or by telephone on 14040. Think, for example of noise pollution or blown-up mailboxes and dustbins.
The City Council wants to find out where the problems mainly occur. They want to draw up a plan of action for the next New Year period. The Municipality an official fireworks show.
No fireworks-free zones
There are no fireworks-free zones in Eindhoven at this time of year. There are too few police officers available to maintain these zones.
A survey carried out by the Municipality among 4,200 Eindhoven residents shows that 60% of them are in favour of a central fireworks display. Slightly more than half of the city’s residents are in favour of a ban on the use of fireworks by private individuals.
