Policy, Instruments & Monitoring

Our policy plans

OVAM produces plans for various waste and material streams, aimed at achieving EU and regional targets for reduction, reuse and recycling of waste.

We currently have policy plans for household waste and comparable company and/or commercial waste, plastics, biomass and food waste, sustainable building materials, asbestos, illegal dumping and littering.

These plans describe the current status, challenges, targets, obligations, conditionalities, actions to be taken, ways of financing and funding, etc. We update the plans regularly in order to adapt them to changing circumstances. 

Municipalities play a key role in local implementation. Which is why we work closely with them to find tailormade solutions to local recycling and waste management challenges and for the transition to a circular economy
