The history of take-e-way began in 2004. At that time the company was founded to manage all producer requirements for electrical and electronic equipment for its customers in accordance with the Electrical and Electronic Equipment Act (ElektroG/WEEE).
Because of the ever-growing mass of environmental laws, rules and regulations the customers of take-e-way asked for even more full service solutions, especially for the Batteries Act (BattG) and the Packaging Ordinance (VerpackV). take-e-way took up the challenge and developed jointly with its customers an integrated portfolio of services, allowing them to manage the most important environmental laws.
Thus take-e-way offers tailored services for an easy compliance with the German Electrical and Electronic Equipment Act, the Batteries Act and with the Packaging Ordinance as far as possible. This is true both in financial terms and in terms of a low level of bureaucracy.
The implementation of the Electrical and Electronic Equipment Act in Germany created many disadvantages of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). In order to solve these problems at the political level, the "VERE Association" has become the political representative of take-e-way's clients. Today VERE represents the interests of more than 2,000 small and medium-sized enterprises.
Headquarters and branch office of take-e-way GmbH and VERE Association are located in Hamburg, Germany.
