Providing assistance to producers
In 2021 we listed 4,833 active membership contracts. We’d like to thank these new partners for the trust they have placed in us as well as for their commitment to the building of an ever more demanding and ambitious recycling model.
How is the eco-fee redistributed?
The eco-fee is paid by the consumer upon the purchase of a new appliance/or bulb. It enables collection and recycling operations of household WEEE, Professional WEEE and lamps to be financed.
The eco-fee scale is regularly adjusted to include the increased tonnages to be treated, the increase in logistical and treatment costs as well as the variations in price of materials.
These adjustments are essential for ensuring a financial equilibrium and maintaining quality recycling. All ecosystem activities are carried out within a mission of public interest in accordance with non-profit-making principles.

Eco-designing a product consists in considering the environmental impact of all stages of its life cycle when manufacturing it. We provide support to producers in eco-design projects right from the development phases in order to forecast the impacts of the end-of-service life of products. The integration of recycled materials coming from the treatment of old appliances is in line with this virtuous approach. In addition to our works on product recyclability, an issue related to our historic activities, repairability and durability are new challenges that we have started to integrate in the support we provide.
