WEEE Return GmbH offers a full package of services that provides a range of recycling and waste management solutions to ensure all regulations set out in the ElektroG2 law (German waste electrical & electronic equipment law) and the European WEEE Directive are met. This joint venture unites the different areas of expertise of Elektro-Geräte Recycling GmbH (EGR) and REMONDIS Electrorecycling GmbH, which complement each other perfectly.
Which is why WEEE Return is able to deliver such a strong and comprehensive portfolio of services – from collecting, transporting and recycling old appliances to dealing with a whole range of administrative tasks. The greater choice of take-back options makes it really easy for customers to return their unwanted equipment – just as the new law intends it to be – and also helps protect the environment and preserve natural resources. At the same time, businesses distributing and manufacturing electrical appliances that opt to join the WEEE Return scheme are immune to competition-related warnings and fines, which may be imposed if regulations are not complied with. Moreover, WEEE Return members are part of a strong international network which means we deal with all country-specific registration and notification obligations for domestic retailers or manufacturers that sell to customers living in other EU countries.
And last but by no means least, this partnership with WEEE Return provides you with an attractive opportunity to add value to your business as you can offer your customers innovative service concepts. And it’s a great advertising opportunity, as well.
