Bonus for a rain barrel

The City of Brussels gives its inhabitants (postal codes: 1000, 1020, 1120, 1130 Brussels) a bonus for a rain barrel (rainwater collector).

For numerous applications, rainwater is a more attractive alternative for drinking water. Drinking water is not needed for tasks such as watering the garden, a vegetable garden or houseplants, or for the maintenance and cleaning of the house, the car, tools... Rainwater is also softer than tap water, and thus allows to use less maintenance products.

The City of Brussels offers a bonus for the purchase of a rainwater collector that has to be connected to a drain. This installation (ton, barrel,...) is intended for the collection and/or storage of rainwater fallen on a roof of a building situated on the territory of the City.

The rainwater collector has the advantage of being easy to install, without the intervention of a professional.

Amount of the bonus?

The amount of the municipal bonus is set at 75% of the purchase price of the rainwater collector with a maximum of 100 euros per collector per household. The accessories are not eligible for the calculation of the amount of the bonus.

How to apply?

Please fill in the application form and send it, with the necessary supporting documents and dated and signed. This has to be done within four months from the date of the purchase invoice of the rainwater collector.

The regulation and form are only available in Dutch and French.
