Charges on burdening the environment with waste

Charges on burdening the environment with waste include the municipal waste charge and/or the charge on non-hazardous technological waste and the charge on hazardous waste.

Persons subject to the charges on burdening the environment with waste are legal and natural persons disposing of non-hazardous industrial waste on landfills, and legal and natural persons pursuing a business activity generating hazardous waste.  
 

Municipal waste charge and/or charge on non-hazardous technological waste


Municipal waste charge and/or charge on non-hazardous technological waste is calculated according to the quantity of the landfilled waste.
Persons liable to pay the municipal waste charge and/or the charge on non-hazardous technological waste are legal and natural persons disposing of municipal and/or non-hazardous industrial waste to landfills.
Municipal waste charge and/or charge on non-hazardous technological waste is paid by the persons subject to the fee based on the decision of the Fund, where the unit charge per tonne of the landfilled municipal and/or non-hazardous waste amounts to HRK12.00.
The amount of the municipal waste charge and/or charge on non-hazardous technological waste is calculated using the formula N=N1 x O, where:

N – is the amount of the municipal waste charge and/or the charge on non-hazardous technological waste expressed in HRK,
N1 – is the charge per tonne of landfilled municipal and/or non-hazardous technological waste (unit charge),
O – the quantity of landfilled municipal and/or non-hazardous technological waste in a given calendar year.

The method and time limits for the calculation and payment of the municipal waste charge and/or the charge on non-hazardous technological waste, as well as the unit charge, corrective coefficients and more detailed criteria and benchmarks for establishing the amount of the municipal waste charge and/or the charge on non-hazardous technological waste, are regulated in the Ordinance on the method and time limits for calculation and payment of charges on burdening the environment with waste (OG 95/04) and the Regulation on unit charges, corrective coefficients and detailed criteria and benchmarks for determining the charges on burdening the environment with waste (OG 71/04).
 

Charge on hazardous waste

The charge on hazardous waste is calculated and paid according to the quantity of produced untreated or non-exported hazardous waste, and according to the properties of waste.
Persons liable to pay the charge on hazardous waste are legal and natural persons pursuing a business activity which generates hazardous waste.

The charge on hazardous waste is paid by the persons subject to the fee based on the decision of the Fund, where the unit charge per tonne of generated but untreated or non-exported hazardous waste amounts to HRK 100.00.
The amount of the charge on hazardous waste is calculated using the formula: N = N1 x P x kk, where:
         
          N – is the amount of the charge on hazardous waste in HRK,
          N1 – is the charge per tonne of generated but untreated or non-exported hazardous (unit charge),
          P – is the quantity of generated but untreated or non-exported hazardous in a given calendar year,
          kk – is the corrective coefficient depending on the properties of hazardous waste.

The method and time limits for the calculation and payment of the charge on hazardous waste, as well as the unit charge, corrective coefficient and more detailed criteria and benchmarks for establishing the amount of the charge on hazardous waste are regulated in the Ordinance on the method and time limits for calculation and payment of charges on burdening the environment with waste (NN 95/04) and the Regulation on unit charges, corrective coefficients and detailed criteria and benchmarks for determining the charges on burdening the environment with waste (OG 71/04).
