ERP recommends taking extra safety measures when handing in WEEE and batteries during the lockdown

  • In places where recycling points are not in operation, it is recommended to keep WEEE stored at home

Whilst the state of alarm is ongoing, European Recycling Platform recommends taking extra care when handing in waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) and batteries at collection points that are still in operation.

In towns and districts where recycling points do not offer this service, it is recommended that this type of waste be identified and stored temporarily at home during lockdown. ERP also emphasises the need to make sure delivery can be done safely, given that collection points and waste management organisations are currently operating with some restrictions.
