Currently, everyone is talking again about taking back old appliances in the retail sector, as can be seen from recent reports by Environmental protection and trade organisations. In particular, the take-back of old appliances (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment – WEEE) in the retail sector is the subject of controversial debate.
As the now published performance report shows, take-e-way GmbH – together with its service partners from trade, industry, waste management and logistics – was able to significantly increase the amount of WEEE collected and reused and/or recycled for the seventh time in a row in 2022.
It was possible, both through the acquisition of new collection partners and through tireless advertising for the proper collection of discarded electrical appliances, to significantly increase the volume outside the EAR collection coordination. It can already be seen at this stage that take-e-way will reach the self-imposed target of 4,000 collection points in the take-e-back system.
A nice side effect: By participating in the take-e-back system, trading companies fulfil an essential obligation to take back waste electrical and electronic equipment as required by law. Disposal companies have the possibility to generate additional quantities of WEEE for recycling outside the EAR collection coordination.
