Sewage charges for users

Most houses and buildings are connected to the main municipal sewage system. Do you discharge more than 500 cubic metres (m3) of wastewater per year into the municipal sewage system? Then you must pay sewage costs for users.

If you are also the owner of a (movable) property (such as a home or business premises) with a connection to the municipal sewage system, you must pay the sewage charges for owners.

The municipality uses the sewage charges for users to ensure that the sewage system works and is well maintained.
