Consumers role

As consumers buy more and more products, product lifecycles consistently decrease. This increases waste volume, such as discarded packaging, batteries, and disused devices. Simple solutions can relieve the pressure.

Effective recycling solutions benefit people, businesses, and the environment. And they are needed more than ever at a time when waste volumes are increasing and efficient ways must be found to recycle electronic devices, batteries, bottles, paper metal, glass, packaging, and more.

Consumer involvement: What can be recycled?

We believe recycling should be simple. However, the participation of all of us, as consumers or citizens is crucial to make it happen.

We can choose where to deliver our waste regarding its type to guarantee its sorting, treatment, and recycling. The beginning of the waste management chain depends on consumers and then, ERP will do the rest, energizing operations and technical procedures.

Our pyramid of decisions and behaviours to promote a circular economy begins in the shop when we choose our product. Do we consider its energy efficiency? Do we verify if the product is recyclable or has recycled materials?

During usage, we should bear in mind some maintenance and care measures to extend our product’s life cycle, including reuse and repair. If there is no option for the product than recycling, let’s give it a second life!

Recycling of waste from A to Z

After being collected, waste is sorted by groups with different characteristics and treatment requirements to be recycled when not reused. The loop is closed when raw materials are reintroduced into the production system.

Regional collection points

Manufacturers and retailers have the opportunity to hand in household electrical appliances and batteries, for example those handed in by customers directly at their business premises, at any of our partner collection points.

Licensed commercial electrical appliances can also be handed in at these collection points. To do this, you will need our declaration of exemption from obligation. This form is also available at the collection points and can be filled out on site.

Of course, consumers can also hand in their old household electrical appliances and batteries at regional collection points.
