An 'all-in' contribution applies to household appliances. You pay this contribution upon purchasing a new appliance, and the contribution is stated separately on the invoice or the purchase receipt as 'Recupel contribution'. In contrast to the 'administrative contribution', this ‘all-in’ contribution covers the costs for collection and processing as well as for Recupel’s operations and communications.
The ‘all-in’ contribution covers the collection, sorting, transport and processing of the appliances that are brought back to the container park or to the shop at the time of purchase of a new similar appliance. A part of the contribution also goes towards Recupel’s operations and communications (reporting, monitoring companies, ...).
The amount of the all-in contribution varies from product group to product group and is calculated on the basis of the average weight of the product group, the components of the various electro-appliances, the collection percentage, the processing technology, the product life span and other parameters.
