Waste collection charge

This information is provided by: Netherlands Enterprise Agency

In the Netherlands you are responsible for sorting out and taking away your industrial waste. If your local municipality does this job for you, you will have to pay a waste collection charge (reinigingsrecht). In some municipalities, this charge is a fixed amount for a limited quantity. Other municipalities determine the amount on the basis of the sector in which you operate and your number of employees. Not all municipalities provide industrial waste collection services. Where no such service is available, you must take out a contract with a certified waste collector.

Waste collection charge in case of multiple use

Private households pay a waste collection charge for the collection and processing of household waste. If they let out rooms in their home, these premises are being used for multiple purposes. The owner or landlord of the premises must then pay the waste collection charge to the municipal authorities. They may recover this charge from their lodgers.
