Show waste water collection tanks in allotment garden areas

If your allotment generates wastewater and the property is not connected to a sewer, you must install a wastewater tank and notify the authority in writing.

In an allotment garden or on a plot of land in a weekend or vacation home area where water is drawn from the public water supply, the person entitled to use the land is obliged to dispose of the wastewater. Since the plots of land are usually not subject to the sewer connection obligation, the wastewater must be collected in a wastewater collection tank and collected by a certified waste disposal company. Regular emptying must be arranged in good time.

Only sealed monolithic containers are approved as wastewater collection containers. The container must be sized to hold one month's wastewater. The minimum size per property is one and a half cubic meters.


The obligation to notify exists for

  • owners and/or users of allotment gardens
  • owners and/or users of land used as a weekend or vacation home,

if wastewater is produced in large quantities, but the property is not connected to a sewer.
