We had several Dutch miniatures when I was 10 or 12...but it's been a few years...
Ours were kept in cages outside so I don't think we ever had to worry about litter box issues. And I don't think we ever really had any chewing issues...or maybe we just didn't notice them because they were outside and chewing on their own cages. I'm not sure. I would check out the web site that was provided and also maybe talk to your vet about these issues. There might very well be a simple solution that I can't think of because I haven't had rabbits in about 30 years.
Here is some pretty helpful information on indoor rabbits,
The only other thing I could suggest is using a metal litter pan, or one you don't mind if it gets chewed up. we had a cardboard box and a wooden one so our bunny wouldn't be harmed with the plastic from the plastic cat litter boxes. and as the link says, lots of exercise and toys. hope this helps

The main issue is he keeps chewing on his litter box. I know they need to chew, but I've given toys that hang, wooden chews free in the cage and on that sticks out of the wall, and calcium and salt chews. I've also coated the parts he chews on with vinegar and that hasn't even deterred him.
