Paying the waste collection charge

You must pay the waste collection charge (afvalstoffenheffing) for the collection and processing of your household waste. The waste collection charge is part of the municipal taxes (gemeentelijke belastingen) and is billed by your municipality.

Municipalities calculate the amount of the waste collection charge in different ways. Some municipalities calculate the amount of the waste collection charge based of the size of your household. The larger your household, the more you pay. Other municipalities calculate the charge based on the amount of waste collected.

The waste collection charge is included in the municipal tax bill. This is usually sent out in the first 2 weeks of February.

Apply for an exemption on paying municipal taxes

Are you unable to pay your municipal taxes? Then ask your municipality for an exemption. You can be granted an exemption from paying part of the taxes, or all of the taxes. The municipality decides for which taxes you can be exempt from paying. It also determines whether you are eligible for an exemption.

Municipality of Hilvarenbeek: Paying the waste collection charge

Please note. You only pay afvalstoffenheffing (waste disposal charges) if you live in the Netherlands and are registered with a municipality.

Tax bill

You will receive a municipal tax assessment notice every year. There are even more taxes on this. Such as sewerage charges. We try to impose all taxes simultaneously.

Pay by direct debit in 10 installments

You can pay municipal taxes by direct debit. Then you don't have to worry about it anymore. We will debit the amount from your account in ten installments.

Structure of waste levy

Your assessment notice will state the fixed amount for the waste levy for this year. In addition, the assessment notice states the amount you must pay for the times we emptied your container in the past year. The rates depend on the size and content of the container. The rate for emptying a residual waste container is higher than the rate for emptying a container intended for organic waste.

Disagree with the tax bill? You can object within six weeks of the date on your assessment notice.
