Since 2011, the sales prices of packaging materials have decreased, which has led to a reduction of the green Dot fees in the past years. Whereas the fees have decreased for a part of the materials, the trend is reversed for metals, especially for steel. The tariff for these materials is showing a significant increase because they had the worst fall in sales prices since 2011.

The evolution of green Dot fees in recent years is indicated below (in €/kg excl. VAT):
