Landfil and incineration taxes

The Flemish Government implements landfill and incineration restrictions. Levies on landfilling made the tariff for landfilling higher than the tariff for incineration of waste streams in order to discourage final disposal of waste on the landfill sites. For those waste streams that can be recycled, levies ensure that recycling (or pre-sorting) becomes economically more interesting.
