Collection data

Our collection data

Every year ERP recycles more than 35,000 tons of WEEE and batteries.

The ability to recycle and our work correctness under these WEEE and WBA regulations and the objectives assigned by the institutions is represented by the recovery data achieved by ERP over its ten years of activity.

We use an authorised and certified network of transporters and treatment plants that cover the cycle at each stage from the waste treatment to the creation of the new secondary raw material.

Our recycling rates are higher than those required by legislation and this means that only a small percentage of the waste we process ends up in landfill.

Our fees are competitive thanks to continuous optimisations of our supply chain and to our international organisation. We pay attention to our structural costs so that the mark-up in tariffs has the least impact on the producers who rely on us.

Recycling in Europe and Italy

European Recycling

To promote recycling and a safer and greener environment, the European Union has begun to phase out the production and use of harmful substances and to push the Member States to recycle and reuse valuable (and often harmful) materials used in the construction of many industrial and domestic appliances. The EU has established legal and economic incentives. These include banning of landfilling, prohibiting incineration of waste that can be recycled, collection of biological waste and taxation on toxic and unsustainable waste. To ensure a safer and healthier environment, the EU has adopted clear and ambitious targets for waste reduction, reuse and recycling. European producer responsibility legislation requires producers of batteries and EEE to finance the collection and treatment of products the moment they become waste.

Italian Recycling

Following the objectives set by the European Union, Italy has implemented all the related EU Directives, regulations and guidelines.
