Elretur is Denmark’s largest producer responsibility organization, representing many different industries and types of companies. We handle the producer responsibility obligations for electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) and batteries on behalf of our more than 950 members.
Elretur was established as a collective scheme in 2005, at the same time as the WEEE Directive was implemented in Denmark. Elretur thus has many years of experience in managing the WEEE Directive in practice. Elretur is a non-profit organization and in other words ensures a responsible and cost-effective collection, handling and environmental reprocessing of more than 80% of the electronic and battery waste delivered to the country’s recycling centers. You’ve probably seen our containers at your local recycling center.
We are constantly working to improve the collection, recycling and reuse of electronic waste (WEEE) and batteries. In addition, we handle our members’ reports to the authorities, so that the authorities can follow developments within the area and have the right basis for making political decisions.
