Paying the sewage charge

You pay a sewage charge (rioolheffing) for your wastewater and for rainwater that ends up in the sewer. The sewage charge is part of the municipal taxes and is collected by the municipality, which uses that money to pay for maintenance and replacement of the sewers. Some municipalities also call the sewage charge sewage tax (rioolbelasting).

This is how it works in your (future) place of residence

Your (future) place of residence falls under the Municipality of Halderberge.

Municipality of Halderberge: Paying the sewage charge

Please note: you only have to pay  rioolheffing (sewage charge) if you live in the Netherlands and are registered with a municipality.

In determining the sewage charge, the municipality does not make any distinction between the owner and the user. Account is taken of how much water you consume on an annual basis. One sewage rate applies. Please note that you pay for the use of (parts of) a building or land. If you use them separately then you pay for each part. You pay a fixed amount per year. When you use more than 500 m3? Your sewage charge is higher.
