Comments on environmental contributions

  • The contributions are calculated in such a way that the income covers the expected expenses.
  • The Valumat contribution only applies to batches that come onto the Belgian market. Mattresses that are exported do NOT fall under the Valumat system.
  • A VAT percentage of 21% applies to the Valumat rates.
  • The contribution may vary over time, depending on the development of costs.
  • The general assembly of Valumat fixes the contributions annually. The aim is to always inform participants as soon as possible about any changes.
