Online traders are required to offer consumer-friendly disposal options for waste electrical equipment

Based on the latest case law, online traders are required to offer consumer-friendly disposal options for waste electrical equipment. Already since 2016, stationary retailers with a sales floor space for electric equipment from 400 sqm and online traders with electrical mail order and shelf space from 400 sqm have had to offer a free take-back service for waste electrical equipment. In this regard, online traders must prove that they have take-back facilities within a reasonable distance from their respective end customers, i.e. throughout Germany.

In this regard, online traders must prove that they have take-back facilities within a reasonable distance from their respective end customers, i.e. throughout Germany.

An amendment to the [German] Electrical and Electronic Equipment Act (ElektroG) and an associated tightening of obligations in 2022 is imminent. In order to fulfil these obligations, cooperation - e.g. with other traders - is recommended.

take-e-way already established this cooperative venture in 2016, and we have continued to grow ever since.

take-e-back is a take-back system for online traders and stationary retailers. Together with waste disposal companies, haulage companies, social institutions and you, the participating distributors, we form a nationwide take-back network that has met the requirements of the Electrical and Electronic Equipment Act for a return option for consumers within a reasonable distance since 2016.

For your questions and participation in the take-back system at short notice, Wolfgang Obermeyer will be pleased to assist you. Please call +49/40/750687-146 or send an e-mail to logistik@take-e-way.de.
