Netherlands: Hopes for waste tax removal as elections loom

RDF Industry Group chair and Attero marketing manager Robert Corijn said he continues to “hope” the Netherlands’ tax on waste imports will be removed. 

Speaking yesterday at the Energy from Waste Virtual conference, Corijn said the Netherlands had elections next week, which could change things. 

Corijn also explained he and others continued discussion “with the ministry... and we have hopes it will be withdrawn.”
