Landfill derogations

Flanders has a landfill ban on combustible waste. However, as there is shortage in incineration capacity, some landfill derogations have been authorized by ministerial decree. The maximum authorized quantity takes into account the expected quantity of combustible waste that is going to be produced by households and companies. This quantity is then divided over all the landfill sites located in Flanders.
