ACR+ member OVAM lately published two interesting reports. “Rates and capacities for landfill and incineration update 2019” shows that the amount of combustible waste deposited in Flanders is decreasing again. This is partly due to the landfill taxes.

The other report, by the Support Center for Circular Economy, surveyed 1,500 citizens about the purchase of second-hand products through recognized recycling centers and through other channels, such as friends and family, flea markets and online platforms. In 2019, an estimated 34 kilograms of items were reused per inhabitant in Flanders. That the report finds that sales through recognized re-use centers account for one-sixth of total reuse by Flemish households.
