  • 1977 waste act
  • De afname van de hoeveelheid gestort afval en het aantal stortplaatsen gaat gelijk op. In de afgelopen 15 jaar is gemiddeld 170 kton per stortplaats gestort. Vanaf 2002 liep dit gemiddelde sterk terug: 2002 -142, 2003 -114, 2004 -96. In 2005 trad weer een fors ”Herstel” op naar 140 kton per jaar per stortplaats. Wanneer we ervan uitgaan dat het langjarig gemiddelde een redelijke maat is zouden in de komende jaren, waarin de hoeveelheid gestort afval weer naar 3 mln zal zakken, zeker 1/3 van de stortplaatsen moeten verdwijnen

Developments in Dutch Waste Management Oneia Presentation Transcript

  • 1. Development in waste management
    • Lessons learned in the Netherlands
    • Herman Huisman
    • ONEIA, Ontario,
    • August 25th 2011
    >> Focus on environment
  • 2. Contents >> Focus on environment
    • Dutch Performance in waste management
    • Elements of waste policy
    • Examples of progress made in last 20 years
    • From waste management to resource management
    • Outstanding Dutch suppliers
    • Netherlands Waste Management Partnership
  • 3. The Netherlands
    • 16,5 million Inhabitants
    • 7,2 million households
    • 12 provinces
    • 417 Municipalities
    • 60,4 million tons waste
    • 9,2 million tons Household waste
    >> Focus on environment
  • 4. Waste management development stages and scale of government >> Focus on environment waste management department Local issue Municipal scale Provincial scale concessions Inter-Regional Planning, WMC EU International market 1975 1990 2005 Scale Of government
  • 5. Recovery and disposal rates for MSW in 2008 >> Focus on environment
  • 6. Goals of revised National waste management plan 2
    • Decoupling between GDP and waste quantity: total waste quantity may not exceed 69 MT in 2015 and 73 MT in 2021
    • Waste recycling total 85 % in 2015;
    • Household waste recycling from 51% (2006) to 60 % (2015)
    • Commercial waste recycling to 60 % (2015)
    • CDW recycling 95% and Industrial waste (recovery 90% of which at least 85% recycling)
    • Optimize energy recovery from residual waste
    • Limit quantity of waste to be disposed (no combustible waste land filled 2010)
    • Achieving Level Playing Field in EU (promoting market forces, encouraging innovation)
    >> Focus on environment waste management department
  • 7. Elements of waste policy
    • Waste hierarchy : prevention, re-use, material recycling, energy-recovery, incineration, land filling
    • Economic instruments to steer the waste to the preferred treatment
    • Stringent standards for disposal and recycling: decrees on landfill and incineration, standards for building materials, organic fertilizers, ban on landfill
    • Planning at National level : from separate panning systems for hazardous and non-hazardous waste towards one integral national waste plan
    • Cooperation between 3 levels of government: municipal, regional and national
    • Education and communication to create awareness and enhance participation with separate collection schemes
    • Producers responsibility : legal as well as non legal systems for car tyres, batteries, Weee, ELV, packaging
    • Notification and registration of waste transports: from separate to one integral system of registration and notification of waste transports
    • Control and enforcement
    >> Focus on environment waste management department
  • 8. >> Focus on environment Hybride responsibility (differs) Municipality Producer
    • Residual waste
    • Biowaste
    • Bulky waste
    • Payed by citizens (waste taxes)
    • Cars/end of live vehicles
    • Cartyres
    • Electronic and Electriq
    • equipment
    • Plastic piping
    • Plastic window frames
    • Batteries
    • Paper and cardboard
    • Packaging
    • Payed by consumers (taxes, recycling fee)
  • 9. >> Focus on environment Common Dutch Collection Scheme Curbside Bring Residual waste Every other week Biowaste Every other week Paper / cardboard Monthly street containers Glass Street containers Plastic packaging One or two times a month Street containers Textile Quarterly Street containers Bulky waste On demand Civic amenity site
  • 10. Waste Hierarchy? >> Focus on environment
  • 11. Moving towards recycling >> Focus on environment
  • 12. >> Focus on environment
    • Successful sectoral waste policy has brought many benefits, and is still necessary, but
    • (*) limitations of present policies are becoming clear, few gains to reach in traditional waste policy in the Netherlands
    • (*) environmental impact generated by current EU/NL patterns of resource use is too high (ecological footprint)
    • (*) scarcity in itself has become evident, while we still face an increasing demand for materials (in developed and developing countries)
    • (*) shift from waste to materials and supply chains
    • Chances for innovatie, business-cases, new coalitions
    Why Chain approach ?
  • 13. The choice is (y)ours
    • Traditional waste management solutions need to be applied to the full extend for separate collection and recycling worldwide
    • Traditional waste management alone can not solve the challenges we are facing regarding resource use and material & energy scarcity
    • We need to optimize material use and dematerialize our consumption
    • It is necessary to act on many levels and with many partners.
    • The question is not which instruments to apply, but how to apply and combine the available instrument.
    • Most important now is to raise awareness for the necessity of action and to create the right environment for these instruments to be applied

  • 15. Netherlands Waste Management Partnership
    • NWMP is a partnership of producers of equipment, of consultancies and operators and government
    • NWMP is aimed at Public Private Cooperation for international business
    • NWMP-members can offer solutions for a large variety of problems. The Netherlands is, with respect to waste management, a frontrunner in the European Union and the world.
    • In the Netherlands less than 5% of all the waste is land filled; over 83% is recycled and recovered, 12% Waste to Energy
