Waste from Electrical and Electronic Equipment in France. What You Need to Know?
New Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) guidance is set to change how electronic manufacturers, distributors, and sellers operate in France.
To comply with French law, businesses that deal with electrical equipment such as fridges, mobile phones, and computers must now take back their waste from electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) on a 1:1 basis.This means that electrical sellers in France are required to pay for WEEE recycling and disposal. This can be completed via several methods:
- At the point in which you deliver the goods.
- Through local collections set up by the distributor
- By putting a postal solution in place to receive the WEEE
