Frontpage > Who are we

We help you manage your responsibilities

The European Recycling Platform (ERP) is the first compliance scheme authorised to operate in different countries since 2002, in response to the first European Union’s Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive.

Our mission is to help members manage their responsibilities efficiently and globally with regard to WEEE, batteries, and packaging recycling – all supported by our unique data services.

We were created by producers for producers, and we aim to provide our members with high-quality compliance at the best possible price and simplify the complexities of compliance, reporting and waste management.

In June 2014, ERP joined Landbell Group, a global platform for extended producer responsibility. ERP and Landbell Group have collected more than 6 million tonnes of packaging, more than 4 million tonnes of e-waste, and over 90,000 tonnes of portable batteries.

European Recycling Platform Ireland DAC was established in 2005 because of the success and expansion of ERP across Europe. It is Ireland’s only pan-European compliance scheme, providing WEEE and Waste Battery compliance and a B2B service to members.

Discover our world of recycling

Legislation on Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment, the recycling of batteries and the handling of used packaging throughout Europe requires innovative solutions and a partner with an international outlook.

The Batteries for Barretstown battery recycling campaign has been a very exciting project for us, and we are thrilled to be involved in helping to motivate people to become more environmentally aware and to change their battery recycling habits

Dee Ahearn
CEO, Barretstown

The HSE has been actively moving towards a more sustainable and environmentally conscious model. We are delighted to support ‘Batteries for Barretstown’ and have rolled out the battery collection programme across several of our acute hospitals and are looking to extend this into the New Year. Our transition to a circular economy and its associated behavioural change will require assistance and collaboration with many people and organisations.
