The municipality of Schaerbeek is the toughest when it comes to fining its citizens on non-compliance with garbage disposal requirements.
The office of research and juridical processing in Schaerbeek has doubled its agents, from 4 to 8. The plan is to expose perpetrators of the law, those who dispose their garbage cans at an inappropriate time or place. Such non-compliance will be faced with a 180 euro fine per bag and 455 euro fine per cubic meter.
In total, approximately 19 tons of waste are collected daily in this municipality.
Throughout 2018, they reported that 78,000 interventions took place in the area.
