Legislative Decree 49/14, recently amended by Legislative Decree 118/2020, provides for the obligation of EEE Producers to organize and finance WEEE collection, treatment and recycling operations.
This on the basis of the Extended Producer Responsibility Principle and in order to achieve the minimum collection and recycling objectives, imposed by the European Union and implement the so-called Circular economy.
Regarding the B2C WEEE contributions can be managed internally or be included in the product sale price or disbursed in the form of Eco-Contribution visible at the time of goods purchase by the consumer.
The financing due by the producers for B2B WEEE is on demand, i.e. it is requested by the customer each time.
