Recycling fee 2016 to remain unchanged

Recycling fee 2016 to remain unchanged

The recycling fee for 2016 will remain unchanged at 45 euro (including VAT) for every new car sold. The management contributions for Li-ion batteries for hybrid and electric cars will also be unaltered.


The recycling fee makes it possible to meet the legal requirement according to which a recycling performance of 95 percent had to be achieved by 2015. In order to meet this legal requirement, ARN works together with more than 300 companies in the supply chain for end-of-life vehicles. The PST plant also makes a major contribution. On behalf of the automotive sector, ARN implements the Battery Management Decree (Bbb). In return, ARN collects a management contribution from the importers. For 2016, the management contributions will be as follows:

Batteries

The management contribution for car (starter) batteries and NiMH batteries for hybrid cars remains unchanged from that applicable in 2015: €0.05 (excluding VAT). The contributions for Li-ion batteries remain:

  1. €15 per battery (including VAT) for batteries weighing ≤5 kg
  2. €35 per battery (including VAT) for batteries weighing >5 kg and ≤25 kg
  3. €90 per battery (including VAT) for batteries weighing >25 kg and ≤100 kg
  4. €180 per battery (including VAT) for batteries weighing >100 kg and ≤350 kg
  5. For batteries weighing >350 kg, the management contributions will be determined on an individual basis. These contributions are charged over and above the €45 recycling fee. Each year, ARN is responsible for the annual report to the Ministry of Infrastructure and the Environment, in the framework of the Bbb Decree. ARN also ensures the availability of a national network of collection points where private end users can hand in their battery, free of charge.
