De Drekwagen (garbage wagon or street sweeper's cart) was a name given by Leenaert Bouwens to the Waterlander group of the Dutch Mennonites, because they admitted into the membership of their congregations even those persons who were banned by the other Mennonites, and also because they accepted members of other Mennonite branches without rebaptizing them.
