Supporting distance sellers with takeback obligations in Europe and North America

24 August 2022

Extended producer responsibility (EPR) is expanding and one of its obligations is takeback from end-users. To recycle or refurbish end-of-life items, distance sellers must provide takeback on a 1 to 1 (one new purchase for one return) or 0 to 1 (no purchase for one return) basis. 

The current priority is waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) and batteries sold by distance sellers. However, the focus is turning to other EPR streams, such as DIY equipment, furniture, and chemicals.

The Circular Economy Engineering team at Landbell Group company, H2 Compliance, is responding to the growing challenge! 

The team already has a solution in place to accommodate takeback requests from any type of customer (small to large), business type, and sector – and it is currently delivering these services in Europe and North America. 

Since the beginning of the takeback program in 2020, the team has collected more than 15,000 end-of-life devices – the equivalent of around 400 tons of WEEE – in 20 different countries. 

The takeback solution is centralized and completely online and H2 Compliance also provides reporting services to authorities.
