What does it cost?

As a Fost Plus member, you pay an annual contribution for the collection, sorting and recycling of your household packaging. The amount of your contribution depends on the type and the quantity of packaging you bring onto the market.

How is your annual membership contribution calculated?

Your annual contribution is calculated based on the Green Dot rates. A fixed rate is applied for every type of material. These rates are expressed per kg or per unit depending on the declaration system you choose.

The Green Dot rates are adapted each year based on the costs Fost Plus incurs for the collection, sorting and recycling of the packaging. Revenues that Fost Plus generates from the sale of the materials are also taken into account.

This contribution amounts to at least 30 euros.

You pay no contribution for the reusable packaging in your declaration. If you only declare reusable packaging, you pay the minimum contribution of 30 euros.
