Establishments for the storage and treatment of waste materials from one specific construction and demolition yard or roadworks, whereby after treatment at least 50% of the materials are usefully applied at the place of origin, whereby the establishment shall not have been operational for more than one year and whereby the establishment is situated not more than 1,000 m from the roadworks or in situ (on the plot itself or on an adjoining plot) of the construction and demolition yard

Article This subsection applies to the establishments meant in section 2.2.2, h) of the classification list.


The establishment only accepts, stores and treats waste materials from the specific construction and demolition yard or specific roadworks that is/are explicitly specified and identified in the notification dossier. The stored quantity of waste materials and recycled aggregates is limited to the quantities specified in the notification dossier.


Only the following types of waste materials are stored and treated in the establishment:

inert waste materials consisting of the stony fraction of construction and demolition waste from the construction and demolition of buildings, engineering structures and constructions and from roadworks; 

non-tar-containing asphalt from the construction and demolition of buildings, engineering structures and constructions and from roadworks.


The following waste materials may not be processed in the establishment:


tar-containing asphalt;

builders' and demolition waste containing asbestos cement waste or other asbestos-containing building materials in which asbestos in bonded form is present;

building and demolition waste containing free asbestos fibres or asbestos dust;

other dangerous waste materials;

other non-dangerous waste materials not stated in subparagraph 2 of this Article. 



The operations authorised in the establishment are limited to:



sorting and preparatory mechanical treatment, such as crushing with a view to breaking up;



Article The establishment is located not more than 1,000 m from the roadworks, measured from the boundaries of the plot or the demarcated site area of the roadworks, or in situ (on the plot itself or on an adjoining plot) of the construction and demolition yard.


The storage of rubble and recycled aggregates to be broken up is limited to a maximum of one year from the date of the notification.


The processing of the waste materials is limited to a maximum of sixty working days within the one-year period specified in paragraph 1.


The time limits specified in paragraphs 1 and 2 may not be extended.

Article The delivery and processing of waste, as well as the removal of recycled aggregates and residual fractions, are prohibited on weekdays between 7 p.m. and 7 a.m., and on Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays.

Article For the entire period of its operation, the establishment is provided with a permanent or temporary fence that makes access to mobile equipment impossible. The access road is also provided with an option to be closed off.


A sign is erected on the access road in a location clearly visible from the public highway that clearly states the following:


"toegang verboden voor onbevoegden" [no unauthorised access];

the establishment's nature

the name, address and telephone number of the operator;

the normal opening hours; 

the start and end dates of the activities;

the address and telephone number of the supervisory authority; 

in case of fire or other emergencies: telephone number of the fire brigade. 

Article The provisions of section 4.5.5 apply to the establishments meant in this subsection. By way of derogation from this subsection, by day the specific noise in the open air from the establishment during mechanical treatment at the measuring points specified in Article 1, §3 and §4 of appendix 4.5.1 to this order is limited such that the background value in appendix 4.5.4 to this order, increased by 20 dB(A), is not exceeded. This provision does not apply in establishments that require silence, to which section 4.5.5 continues to apply.


§ 1.

Before mechanical treatment of the waste materials begins, the operator sends the following information to the authority to which the notification was submitted, and to the competent supervisory authority:

the start date and duration of the period during which waste materials will be mechanically treated;

the distance from the establishment to the specific construction and demolition yard or the specific roadworks;

the identification details of the rubble crusher, as established in the context of the Geographical Information System (GIS);

a copy of the certificate of the rubble crusher that will be used, issued by a recognised inspection body in the context of the VLAREA;

a description of the source strength (LW) of the rubble crusher in dB(A);

the distance from the rubble crusher to the nearest house and establishment requiring silence. 


§ 2.

The register that the operator maintains in application of waste regulations also contains the following information:


at all times: the estimated quantity and the nature of stored waste materials awaiting treatment; 

at all times: the estimated quantity and the nature of the stored recycled aggregates;

the times (days and times) at which waste materials are mechanically treated. 


§ 3.

Inert waste and non-tar-containing asphalt are stored and treated on a level hard surface, without the need to fit an impervious hard surface. The waste and recycled aggregates are stacked in a safe manner, with no risk to the environment.


§ 4.

The operator takes the necessary measures so that waste materials that cannot be usefully applied within the construction and demolition yard or the roadworks of which the establishment is part are removed regularly.


§ 5.

The establishment has a calibrated weighing installation with automatic registration.


§ 6.

During delivery and removal periods and during mechanical treatment, a responsible person with sufficient competence and knowledge of the conditions to be observed and the measures to be taken is present at all times. The operator informs the supervisory authority of the name of this person in writing.


§ 7.

The operator takes all necessary measures to prevent and limit dust nuisance.


If necessary, a sprinkler system or spray truck is used to keep the waste and recycled aggregates being stored ready for crushing, as well as the dust-sensitive areas of the site, damp, both during the storage phase and during crushing.


When transporting construction and demolition waste and waste from roadworks to the establishment and when removing recycled aggregates, the necessary precautions, such as covering or spraying, are taken to counter losses of load and the spreading of dust.


§ 8.

The machines are set up in such a way that vibrations are not emitted into the environment.


§ 9.

The rubble crusher is fitted with a web-based information system linked to a GPS system. The information system is operational whenever the rubble crusher is being used.


The web-based information system specified in subparagraph 1 enables the certification body and the supervisor to visualise the location of the production installation, monitor operations and review the production period. This information is recorded and listed in a central database available on-line for the certification body and the supervisor.


§ 10.

Within thirty days of the end of activities and within a period of one year's operation specified in Article, §1, the site is completely cleaned.
