All companies are obligated to sort their waste. These “companies” are all entities registered with the Crossroads Bank for Enterprises (CBE): independents, physical persons, companies, charities, Public Welfare Centre, administrations… So as soon as you have a business number and you produce waste, you are subject to this obligation.
The obligation to sort waste implies that you can’t dispose of all of your waste in bulk in your residual waste container. You need to separate it by waste flow (type).
In addition to sorting its waste, your business or company must ensure that its waste is managed correctly. Specifically, this means that you will have to supply evidence of waste management. This waste management evidence must contain detailed information about the waste sorted, that has been collected from you or that you have delivered, to be provided by your waste collector or processing centre.
Every business in Brussels has been obligated to sort its waste since 2014. To achieve this, it is important to understand that each flow (type) of waste has its own sorting rules.
