In Wallonia, only a person registered with the administration can transport and collect non-hazardous waste. This registration is issued by the SPW Agriculture, Natural Resources and Environment (SPW ARNE), and more specifically the Soil and Waste Department (DSD).
Our goal? To preserve human health and the environment.
Registration of professionals

If you are transporting non-hazardous waste yourself, you must be registered as a waste transporter, in addition to your registration as a collector, dealer or broker. If you use a subcontractor for transportation, the subcontractor must also be registered.
