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 Heerde.

Municipality of Heerde: Paying the sewage charge

You pay for the disposal of waste water in the sewer through the sewerage charge. We impose a sewerage tax assessment on owners of homes and businesses. With the proceeds of the sewerage levy we pay the costs of:

  • the collection and disposal of domestic waste water and industrial waste water.
  • the collection and disposal of rainwater.

We levy sewerage charges for owners based on the situation on January 1 of the year. Are you selling your property during the year? In that case, the amount of the attack will not change. The notary settles the owner's tax on the sale with the new owner.
