How much is the waste management fee and how does it work?
Here you can find the 2021 rates list. Every year before 1 December, the OPEN Foundation publishes the rates of the various product categories for the next year. If your annual invoice exceeds € 1200, you must pay a monthly advance. This depends on the expected Put-On-Market (POM) of a year. At the beginning of each new calendar year you are supposed to submit a declaration, which means that at the beginning of 2022 you can report on 2021. Subsequently, a settlement takes place. This advance is necessary to be able to organise the collection, transport, sorting and processing of WEEE during the year. The waste management levy creates a so-called level playing field. The rates are fixed, there are no discounts.
