What do you need to do to receive your premium?

You don't have to do anything yourself. It is your collector who annually passes on your data to Valorlub. You log in to our website with your unique code that you receive from Valorlub during April of the year following the year of collection and Valorlub will take care of the payment of your premium.

When will you receive your recycling premium?

The fees related to collections in 2022 will be paid by Valorlub in 2023.

Important for your accounting …

  • The Valorlub premiums are subsidies and are therefore free of VAT
  • You do not need to send invoices and you do not receive a credit note
  • You book your compensation on a 74-account (other operating income)

Always work with an approved collector

Every professional user is responsible for having their used oil collected. Only collectors approved by the various authorities are eligible for such collections. They have the oil processed in licensed processing installations.
