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 Midden-Delfland.

Paying the sewage charge

Sewage charge is a tax for households and companies that discharge water directly or indirectly into the municipal sewerage system. 

Who pays sewerage charges?

Every user of a property pays sewerage charges. It does not matter how much waste water is discharged. There are homes and (horticultural) businesses in the outlying area that do not have a connection to the municipal sewerage system. These are known to the municipality and do not receive a sewerage tax assessment.
