Common provisions.

Article The provisions of this subsection apply to the establishments meant in subsections 2.2.3, a), b) and c) of the classification list.

Article By way of derogation from the general provisions applicable to waste processing establishments, class 3 establishments require neither a weighbridge, nor a screen of greenery nor a waste register.

Article Outside opening hours, the composting establishment must be closed to unauthorised persons. [...]

Article The operator keeps a compost journal containing information on temperature measurements and dates relating to turning and end product harvesting.



Aerobic composting must be managed such that:


uniform aerobic composting is assured in the compost heaps;


the composting time is such that the process results in a serviceable end product.


The aerobic composting establishment has a spreading area to ensure complete composting. When the composting heaps are built, the material to be composted is sufficiently dampened to facilitate the composting process. The substrate is regularly turned to maintain aerobic conditions in the heap. The equipment needed to aerate or turn the compost must be present.


If compost is stored temporarily, this must be in an area which is free of dust and in heaps of no higher than 4 metres.


Composting establishments with a composting area greater than 10 m must have a sealed and waterproof floor fitted with a drainage system. The drainage water is collected, treated if necessary, and stored with a view to future reuse as a means of dampening the composted waste.
