European Recycling Platform (ERP) was founded in 2002 as the first pan-European organization to implement the European Union’s regulations on the recycling of electrical and electronic waste (WEEE Directive). ERP now manages a consolidated network and has developed vast international expertise, expanding its recycling services to include batteries as well as packaging.
ERP is the only approved pan-European compliance organization that is trusted by over 2,600 members across Europe and the first in the market offering compliance for WEEE, Batteries and Packaging in 32 countries.
Our mission is to develop high-quality, cost-effective recycling services for the benefit of producer members, consumers and ultimately the environment and society.
Our network and expertise ensures compliance for producers and importers allowing them to focus on their core business.
As well as consolidating our presence throughout Europe, ERP is currently working to expand its expertise into new territories, such as the recently activated Turkey and Israel.
