The Netherlands will see a decrease in vehicle recycling fees from 2022

The RAI Association and ARN recently announced that as of the 1st of January 2022, the recycling fee for passenger cars and light commercial vehicles will be €25. A reduction of € 5 currently. According to the article on Greenlight, the decrease is possible thanks to the introduction of the Universally Binding Declaration (Avv).

Since the 1st of May of this year, the recycling fee applies to all passenger and light commercial vehicles that have a Dutch registration number. The recycling contribution also applies to more than 200,000 cars and light commercial vehicles imported from abroad each year, meaning the contribution per vehicle can be reduced.

The management fees that participating importers pay to ARN for the collection and recycling of Li-ion batteries for hybrid and fully electric cars will continue to fall. The decrease is approximately 50 percent, depending on the weight of the battery. The main reason is that the average battery life is longer than expected based on current insights.

High recycling performance

The recycling contribution on cars makes it possible to meet the legal obligation of at least 95 percent car recycling including reuse. All end-of-life cars in the Netherlands are sustainably recycled and virtually all residual materials are put to good use. Car dismantling companies, shredder companies and recycling companies have collectively achieved a recycling rate of approximately 98 percent in recent years.

The management fees that participating car importers pay to ARN for the collection and recycling of Li-ion batteries from hybrid and fully electric cars will fall sharply in the coming year.

Decrease in management contributions for Li-ion propulsion batteries

The management contributions that participating car importers pay to ARN for the collection and recycling of Li-ion batteries from hybrid and fully electric cars will fall sharply next year with a decrease of around 50 percent, depending on the weight of the battery. The main reason for this is that the average battery life is longer than expected based on current insights. As a result, fewer and later drive batteries are returned for recycling than was previously taken into account. This means that the costs for collection and recycling are incurred much later. In addition, the recycling costs are expected to decrease over this longer period due to technological developments and economies of scale. For this reason, the management fees that participating importers pay to ARN for propulsion batteries that they place on the market can be reduced.

The contributions for Li-ion starter batteries and drive batteries in 2022 (incl. VAT):

  • € 3,- per battery with a weight of ≤5 kg
  • € 5,- per battery with a weight >5 kg and ≤15 kg (48V category)
  • € 8,- per battery with a battery weight >15 kg and ≤25 kg
  • €25 per battery with a battery weight >25 kg and ≤100 kg
  • € 45,- per battery with a battery weight >100 kg and ≤350 kg
  • € 55 per battery with a battery weight >350 kg and ≤600 kg
  • € 65 per battery with a battery weight >600 kg and ≤900 kg

In collaboration with the RAI Association, ARN provides annual reporting to the Ministry of Infrastructure and the Environment and provides a nationwide network of companies where end users can hand in their car or starter battery free of charge.

The management contribution for lead-acid and NiMH starter batteries and drive batteries will remain unchanged in 2022 compared to 2021: € 0.05 (excl. VAT).
