Performance report regarding WEEE take-back by SMEs

take-e-way took back nearly 7,000 tons of WEEE in 2016
(PresseBox) (Hamburg, ) The first year of operations of our collective take-back system for WEEE in the retailing sector has taken a very positive course, mainly due to support by our members and customers and we received a lot of positive feedback.

Out of gratitude for all those committed pioneers in the forefront of this service, who along with us took the first and sometimes difficult steps despite multiple bureaucratic hurdles, we compiled a performance report regarding our SME-specific take-back system showcasing the results, insights and achievements of the first year.

By compiling this report, we would like to show all obligated or voluntarily operating producers and retailers of electronic devices what an effective organization of WEEE take-back in cooperation with competent regional operating waste disposal companies can look like and how multi-faceted it has been implemented in our system take-e-back.

Together with our partners, mainly SMEs, we took back nearly 7,000 tons of WEEE in 2016. 2,800 tons thereof resulted directly from take-e-back operations. This data was verified by an independent technical expert.

We are exceptionally proud of the achieved results, especially because bureaucratic hurdles have a detrimental effect on take-back solution participation and collection points nowadays frequently oppose excessive officialism.

It is our sincere desire to win over more partners to further improve and develop our system and we are open to any form of suggestions, because our system relies on reciprocity and cooperation. We are looking forward to welcoming you into our midst: +49 (40) 219010770 / [][/email]
