Waste disposal fee to become recycling fee
As from 1 January 2013, when purchasing a new car, consumers will pay a recycling fee rather than a waste disposal fee. The term recycling fee ties in better with the environmentally-responsible manner in which car dismantling companies, collection companies, recycling companies, shredder companies and recently also the PST facility have for many years been processing parts and materials for reuse.
The term also contributes better to the sustainable image the automotive sector wishes to propagate. The term waste disposal fee tends to elicit a picture of materials and waste no longer suitable for use.
The intention is to launch a modest advertising campaign next year, to inform the public about the name change. It is vital that car manufacturers inform their dealer organisations in good time so that the term recycling fee can be used on invoices, starting on 1 January.
