As a non-private individual, you can take your ‘household’ WEEE to a number of agencies free of charge.
- The appliances still work? Simply give them to someone who can still use them, to an association, or to a recycling shop.
- A regional transfer station (RTS) will also accept your household WEEE. If there is no RTS in the area, then go to an intermunicipal company, which can allow you to take your household electro-appliances to your container park.
(A regional transfer station is a deposit where discarted electro-appliances are stored).
- Upon delivery of your discarded appliances, you receive an official, stamped receipt that serves as proof of delivery.
- When you purchase a new, similar appliance, you can ask your supplier to take back the discarded appliance (see also ‘What is the take-back obligation?’).
- Or why not become a collection point yourself? This is possible as of a certain volume and frequency. All you need to do is register, request transport, and satisfy the collection conditions for household appliances.
