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. If you have any questions about the waste collection charge, contact your municipality.
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.
This is how it works for you
Here is some information from your municipality.

The Waste collection charge is a contribution for the collection and processing of household waste. In the event of death or if you move from Nissewaard, the contribution is automatically reduced proportionally. You don't have to do anything for this. This also applies if you move within Nissewaard to an address where tax is already paid.
See the website for more information.
