This communication is only and only to the present decision on deposit in 2023 will still degrade, and to the courageous decision of the Flemish government for reusable beverage containers at events further to hollow. First of all, the decrease of the litter goes to the Flemish regional roads and motorways. Think of the “steenwegen” and “jobs”, mainly focused on through traffic. That is a limited segment of the Flemish streets. Photos in newspapers in this article have mostly the wrong places in the picture. People are familiar with the roads and traffic agency at all, the difference between litter and sluikstort?

The pesky message that Fost Plus, Fevia and Mooimakers want to give you is: you see, we get it under control, a deposit is not necessary. That is their only concern, not the welfare of the planet.Luc Roman
The figures? The methodology? There is no clarity on when, in relation to other activities the counts happen. If you are going to clean up after a maaibeurt of a shoulder than you can find previously micro plastics than bottles and cans, or better said, you will find that not return, too small, between the feelers spilling on the floor or weggewaaid in the meantime. On the way to water and the sea. These locations 5% of the litter in the studies that OVAM occasionally do. If there is already a reduction by half would have the 2.5% and not 50 % on the total.more
The local authorities have today, however, the feeling that the issue is no longer under control, especially on non-regional streets and squares. In particular, where the cafés, pop-up bars, the coffees “on the go” and street festivals occur. In addition, a part of these regional roads, where they have villages and towns to traverse by the local authorities and volunteers clean made. A local board will receive its inhabitants, after all, it does not explain that it is only “his” streets clean and the regional road to Flanders leaves. So what are you actually measuring?
The pesky message that Fost Plus, Fevia and Mooimakers want to give you is: you see we get it under control, a deposit is not necessary. That is their only concern, not the welfare of the planet. That OVAM is once again in the trapping leaves through the Fost would nevertheless gradually what bells need to ring in the Flemish parliament. You would expect that a Flemish board right behind of local governments, quod non . Difficult, of course, as Fost on your lap (8 of the 10 employees of Mooimakers be paid by Fost and houses the offices of OVAM, in Mechelen).
it Is not time to the entanglement between OVAM and Fost Plus to cut?Luc Roman
Also in the delivery and check of the figures appears to be little improvement. Even for the collection via the blue bag bases OVAM (and IVC) focuses on the figures of Fost.Fostwachter
Who are heavily exaggerated in evidence. How can it be otherwise if you the poacher to Fostwachter bombards? Yet, exactly the same methodology can be used: festivalorganisatoren (heavily sponsored and supported by Fost and its members) will be able to measure and prove that they “more than 90%” of their beverage containers for recycling (which is wrong, because it comes purely to the collected packaging material). On the methodology of control has OVAM has not yet learned a lot. They allow the collected packaging are weighted and compared with the “buyback”. There is no correction for the used packaging hanging dirt or occupant water, cola... Recover calculated this for the blue bag at 17%. the
For festivalgebeuren risk that best more. Apart from the very limited control on the “purchase”, when sponsored liquor is sold, there might not even be a purchasing document, but the empty-sponsored packages be counted in the recycling rate (error, it comes to collection rates).
It is a sad thing that OVAM, after thorough studies of local authorities, this theme won't take over, and reflected in its policies, reporting and control. Is it not time to the entanglement between OVAM and Fost Plus to cut?
