REMONDIS Electrorecycling

Every EU member state has transposed the provisions of the WEEE Directive into national law. The result: each individual country has its own special conditions. REMONDIS Electrorecycling knows them all.

  • The ‘ElektroG’ in Germany

    • The German parliament transposed the WEEE Directive into national law by passing the ‘ElektroG’ (Elektro- und Elektronikgerätegesetz). This law came into force in August 2005 and regulates how electrical and electronic equipment is placed on the market as well as how it is to be returned, collected and recycled using environmentally sound technology. A clearing house called the ‘Elektro-Altgeräte Register’ was set up to support the process.

    The ‘DEEE’ in France

    • France adopted the WEEE Directive by passing the ‘déchets d'équipements électriques et électroniques’ ordinance (‘DEEE’) which has been in force since July 2005. It regulates how waste from discarded electrical and electronic equipment must be handled.

    The ‘EAG-VO’ in Austria

    • The Austrian ‘EAG-VO’ ordinance (Elektroaltgeräte-Verordnung) came into effect in August 2005. A coordination centre called the ‘Elektroaltgeräte Koordinierungsstelle Austria GmbH’ (EAK) was also established to help achieve the goals of the WEEE Directive.

    Legislation in Poland

    • The ‘Ustawa o zuzytym sprzecie elektrycznym i elektronicznym’ is the official title of the law passed in Poland to adopt the provisions of the European WEEE Directive. It has been regulating the collection and recycling of WEEE since August 2008.

    Other countries

    • Besides its operations in Germany, France, Austria and Poland, REMONDIS Electrorecycling also collaborates with take-back schemes in other neighbouring European countries – for example with Wecycle in the Netherlands and ZEOS in Slovenia.
