Did you know that you have the right to return your waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) to an online retailer free of charge when buying new equipment?

Under the European WEEE Directive, online retailers are obliged to offer a take-back service which allows their customers to return equivalent WEEE free of charge when buying new electrical or electronic equipment online. The aim of the Directive is to reduce the amount of WEEE, increase its recycling and, thereby, protect the environment.

However, the WEEE Directive is implemented differently across member states which poses a challenge for retailers. Keeping up to date and always knowing which rules currently apply in each member state is a complex and time-consuming task.

Landbell Group has therefore launched a new WEEE take-back service in 2020 to support online retailers in meeting their legal obligations. As a global expert in environmental compliance, Landbell Group has significant expertise in collecting WEEE from 19 member states and strong partnerships in other countries.

The WEEE take-back service provides online retailers with a single point of contact for managing the take-back of WEEE in all 19 available countries. The user-friendly web portal is available in 14 languages to help online retailers handle the take-back with their customers from these countries.
