General Information

Fost Plus is a government approved not for profit organisation born of a voluntary action by the private sector to finance, coordinate and promote the selective collection, sorting and recycling of household packaging waste.

It was created to allow industry to respond in a global and concrete manner to packaging legislation and, more precisely to the application of the European directive (94/62/CE of 20/12/94) and its transposition into Belgian law as a Cooperation Agreement between the three Belgian regions. The law came into force on 5 March 1997.
