Clear and ambitious policy goals enable OVAM to monitor and measure our progress and to stay on track
Waste & litter
The manufacturers of products that account for a significant share of litter waste will be responsible for the costs of collection and processing of such litter by 2023.
Reduce the amount of litter entering the marine environment by 75%, by 2025.
25% less incineration of residual waste by 2030, by stepping up the separate collection of recyclable waste streams. This corresponds with a drop in the amount of residual household waste from 145 kg pp to 100 kg pp by 2030.
Separate collection of waste for recycling increased to 77.5% by 2030.
Plastics & packaging
All packaging must be reusable, recyclable, compostable or biodegradable by 2025.
PET bottles must contain 50% of recycled content by 2025.
The sorting and recycling capacity for plastics in Flanders must be quadrupled by 2030.
70% recycling of plastic packaging waste from households and 65% recycling of industrial plastic packaging waste.
Built environment & asbestos
Obligation to obtain an asbestos attestation when selling your house from 2022 onwards.
All Green Deal Circular Construction participants must have carried out a pilot project by early 2023.
The riskiest asbestos applications must be removed from Flemish buildings and homes by 2034 (e.g. asbestos cement roofs and facades, non-bonded asbestos applications, etc.).
Food & biomass
Separate collection of organic bio-waste and organic waste from all companies and households compulsory by the end of 2023.
85% recycling of organic waste, household and commercial organic waste and organic bio-waste by 2025 (this is not a target in itself for all green waste. It targets the recycling rate per treatment plant and thereby concerns the processing efficiency of these installations.)
30% reduction in food losses through prevention, re-use and separate collection by 2025.
Soil & space
Remediation of all historically contaminated soils must start by 2036.
Reduce further increases in the occupation of land to zero hectares by 2040.
