    Households domiciled in Hotton or recognized as secondary residents are granted a 25 € premium to encourage container yard attendance (loyalty card after 10 attendances a year, at the rate of one attendance a month as a minimum).

    Only heads of household who use the container yard through calendar year at a rate of 10 attendances a year as a minimum in different months are entitled to that premium.

    The attendance certificate will be made out according to the loyalty card issued and stamped monthly by the container yard staff.

    Only one stamp a month is allowed. If you only bring garden waste or broken bricks, your card won’t get stamped. This measure aims at urging households to modify deeply their consumer habits and to recycle commonly used products.

    The municipal premium is granted upon request to the Burgomaster and Aldermen’s College.

    Fill in the fields on the backside of your loyalty card to achieve your request. Send your loyalty card back when it has been stamped ten times.

    The municipality’s inhabitants can use all the container yards managed by IDELUX for free.
