Waste electrical and electronic equipment recycling

What is WEEE and ElektroG?

The European WEEE Directive (Waste of Electrical and Electronic Equipment) was implemented into German law by the law on the placing on the market, the take-back and the environmentally friendly disposal of electrical and electronic equipment (Elektro- und Elektronikgerätegesetz - ElektroG). The directive and the ElektroG refer to all types of electrically operated devices.

Raptors LED Technik® is registered with the “Stiftung Elektro-Altgeräte Register” (EAR) with the reg.no. DE 87156913 registered. The EAR is the joint body of the manufacturers in the sense of the ElektroG and was entrusted by the Federal Environment Agency with the performance of sovereign tasks. In this context, the foundation registers the manufacturers of electrical and electronic equipment and coordinates the provision of collection containers and the collection of the old equipment from the public waste disposal authorities (örE).

The ElektroG aims to protect the environment and health. In addition, it should help conserve natural resources. The basic prerequisite for this is that old devices are properly disposed of and recycled as efficiently as possible. Therefore, every consumer is legally obliged to collect old electrical and electronic equipment separately and to take it back to the take-back points, e.g. B. Return recycling centers or collection points of trading companies.
