Our services

Are you wishing or required to comply with the terms of the Dutch regulations regarding waste electrical and electronic equipment? And do you want to create added value at the same time? Weee Nederland is a collective take-back system, registered with the government. On behalf of manufacturers and importers, we fulfil the requirements of the Dutch implementation of the European WEEE directive. Weee Nederland does this in a way that yields added value for people and the environment.

Our
approach

Weee Nederland organises the collection and recycling of waste electrical equipment (WEEE or commonly referred to as e-waste) in the Netherlands for its affiliated manufacturers and importers. We work together with local authorities, recyclers and other partners to accomplish this. Participation, innovation and efficiency are key values in the process. Our aim is clear-cut: added value for every link in the chain!

Last year 30 million kilos of old appliances were collected by us. A total of 166 million kilos of discarded appliances were collected and registered in the Netherlands last year. That is 44% of the sold weight. If solar panels are left out, the return percentage is 49%.

As of 15 August 2018, there will be a legislative amendment whereby new categories must be applied in the reporting of EEE. This change can have an impact on the products you need to report. It may even happen that you have to report products that did not have to be reported before. New equipment are for example household fixtures and e-bikes. Household fixtures will be in category 5, small appliances. E-bikes are in category 4, large appliances. The Dutch government applies this amendment from January 2019.
