Recycling fee

The collection, logistics and treatment is financed by means of the so-called recycling fees.

The recycling fee is a financial sum by which the electrical and electronic equipment producers and importers contribute to the collection, logistics and treatment of non-functional electro equipment. The amount of the recycling fee corresponds to current financial and technological demands and the recycling process in the Czech Republic of individual groups of electro equipment collection. The participants contribute to the compliance scheme depending on the number of pieces of electro equipment they put on the market.
