Conditions for premium for waste oil in Belgium

Conditions for the premium for waste oil

The premium that Valorlub pays relates to a fixed quantity. For collections in 2023, a premium is attributed for quantities less than 10,000 litres.
Depending on a number of parameters, Valorlub sets the amount and quantity annually.

  • You are a professional user of oil (garage owner, company, etc.) and you have your used oil collected on Belgian territory.
  • You have less than 10,000 litres of used oil collected annually (via one or more collections)
  • You have your used oil collected by an accredited Valorlub collector
  • The type of oil used falls within the scope of the acceptance obligation
  • The used oil is of good quality (< 10% water) and is not mixed with PCBs, water, solvents, cleaning agents, animal or vegetable oils, detergents, brake fluids, fuels and other hazardous waste
  • Valorlub does not pay any fees for the collection of transformer oil
  • There is no intervention when the used oil is collected free of charge or when the collector grants a compensation to the professional user
  • A maximum of one premium is paid per environmental permit

Valorlub expects the professional user to have fulfilled all contractual obligations towards his client.


Amount of the premium

The flat-rate fee for collections in 2023 is:

from 0 to 5.499 liters: 115 euro

from 5.500 to 7.499 liters: 150 euro

from 7.500 to 9.999 liters: 200 euro

What do you have to do for your waste oil premium?

You do not have to do anything yourself. It is your collector who passes on your data to Valorlub annually. 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 takes care of the payment of your premium.

When will you receive your recycling premium?

The fees related to collections in 2023 will be paid by Valorlub in 2024.

  • The Valorlub premiums are subsidies and are therefore exempt from VAT
  • You do not have to send any invoices and you do not receive a credit note
  • You book your fee on a 74-account (other operating income)

Always work with an approved collector

Each professional user is responsible for having their used oil collected. Only the collectors approved or registered by the various authorities are eligible for such collections. They have the oil processed in processing facilities licensed for this purpose.

List of approved collectors

Neither Valorlub nor your oil supplier are approved or licensed to collect used oil themselves.
