Call for candidates contractors

Recupel calls for candidates who, on a contractual basis, can perform these services as from 1 July 2021. Applications must be in possession of Recupel at the latest on 04 December 2020 at 5 pm.  They are submitted either by registered letter under closed envelope (the sealed envelope is put in a double envelope), or delivered to Recupel (Bld Auguste Reyers 80, 1030 Brussels) on 03/12/2020 or 04/12/2020 between 9 am and 5 pm, under closed and sealed envelope and against receipt.

The application is submitted in the following form : (1) a letter that states the identity of the candidate and the service area(s) covered by the application, signed by the competent person(s), together with (2) a USB-stick holding dated and signed pdf-documents (see under point 4 of the attachment here after). 

A candidate may apply for one or multiple missions. In that case, the different applications must be submitted in the same envelope.


Recupel will assess the timely submitted applications and select candidates by 03 January 2021. These selected candidates will be sent tender specifications as from 04 January 2021. They must submit their offer by 12 February 2021 at 5 PM at the latest.

Further to the assessment of the offers and approval by the competent authorities, Recupel will enter into an agreement with the selected contractors by 30 June 2021 at the latest. Such contract will in principle enter into force on 1 July 2021. Only in case of unforeseeable circumstances, this schedule can be deviated from.

Regarding the finely meshed collection of WEEE, the candidate specifies in its application which territorial service area its application involves: the Belgian territory is divided into 11 service areas, which match with the 10 Provinces and the Brussels Capital Region.

This doesn’t apply for the other missions.


The contract to be entered into shall have a definite term and shall terminate as a matter of law on 30 June 2024.

The candidate can appeal to subcontractors but remains the sole party responsible vis-à-vis Recupel. Possible subcontractors must comply with all conditions the candidate itself must comply with. All documents and declarations to be attached to the application of the contractor are also required concerning these third parties.

Recupel is not a public authority and the public procurement legislation is therefore not applicable.

The application can be drafted in Dutch, French or English. It shall include the necessary administrative information on the candidate (company name and commercial name, legal form, nationality, registered seat, company number).
