Our services: consulting, operational administration & legal monitoring. Throughout Europe and worldwide

Safe & legally compliant with Deutsche Recycling

If you put electrical appliances, packaging or batteries on the market or into circulation, you are obliged, as part of your product and producer responsibility (EPR), to observe the respective national requirements and international guidelines with regard to the various environmental regulations. These guidelines oblige you to undertake registration or licensing, to return, dispose of and recycle, and also to report quantities and submit reports to the authorities. As an experienced specialist, we are by your side, in both an advisory and an operational capacity, to ensure that you optimally meet your obligations in the various countries and that you are always secure and legally compliant.

With Deutsche Recycling as your partner, you have the experts that you need by your side amidst the jungle of obligations and legal regulations.

As an outsourced environmental department, we take care of your legal conformity and legal security in all environmental matters, assume liability and reduce your costs. At the same time, you benefit from our established network and the best resources on the market.
For you, this means: less risk, greater security, saved time and money.

It doesn’t matter whether you operate nationally or internationally. Our expertise extends to global regulations and rules – so that you can do business safely and globally.

>>> COMPLIANCE CHECK <<<

Compliance with all legal regulations, whether they be laws on the handling of old electrical and electronic equipment, sales packaging, transport packaging or batteries, changes continuously. Keeping a constant overview here and deriving your own necessary measures in order to always be on the safe side legally and to avoid threatening warnings can become a Herculean task.

So take the Compliance Check!

We check whether legal requirements have changed for you, processes need to be adapted and costs can be optimised

How does Deutsche Recycling help you?

Deutsche Recycling offers a cross-industrial, international full service with a focus on the WEEE Directive and the German Electrical and Electronic Equipment Act, the German Packaging Act and the German Batteries Act. We completely take care of the associated licensing or registration, quantity reports, reporting to the authorities and auditing. In addition, Deutsche Recycling also offers the insolvency-proof guarantee, which is mandatory when registering electrical appliances. We also act as an authorised representative on the German market for companies not domiciled in Germany.

As an internationally operating company itself, Deutsche Recycling is also your professional partner when it comes to selling products on the foreign market. We are familiar with the relevant national guidelines and will find the ideal solution for you.

You will always err on the side of caution with our expertise.

Environment, sustainability and responsibility

With Deutsche Recycling, you are always informed about the latest legislation and new developments in laws and regulations, and are guaranteed to have legally compliant product labels as well as current, plausible and correct documents for national and international trade.

For many companies, the recycling and disposal of their equipment and packaging are not just an annoying duty imposed on them by the authorities. Instead, their values and social responsibility involve managing and disposing of their products in a sustainable and environmentally friendly manner. That is why we are happy to check to what extent your voluntary solutions can be combined with the statutory return solutions.
