Service description

The disposal, i.e. the recycling or disposal including the collection and transport of hazardous waste, is subject to a waste law verification procedure. You are obliged to do this as a person who generates waste and who owns, transports, collects and disposes of hazardous waste.

As a private household, you are exempt from this. You are also exempt from this if you are a small-scale producer who does not produce more than two tonnes of hazardous waste per year.

If you, as a waste disposer, are not approved for the privileged procedure and no collection certificate from a transporter can be used because more than 20 tonnes of waste is generated at your point of generation in the year, you will need an officially confirmed proof of disposal.
