Review of the local support provided to retailers
At the beginning of 2020, we finished updating our collection units with ecosystem’s new colours in all our partners’ stores.
The year was then disrupted by the implementation of health restrictions making it impossible for retailers to carry out their take-back duties in a context where logistics were severely affected.
To assist stores in starting up their WEEE collection activities again we organised a telephone canvassing mission in order to list the needs and concerns of our partners. An effective return to local visits was possible at the end of May 2020, whilst strictly adhering to the health protocols required by the retail stores and according to each region’s policy. Our teams showed how flexible they were in this very special context in order to be able to maintain contact with our partners and support the start up again of their activities.
