Why be a participant

Cooperation with the EKOLAMP compliance scheme brings producers and importers a number of benefits:

  • EKOLAMP assumes many obligations on behalf of the producer and importer of electro equipment and thereby enables them, at minimum expense, to devote their time to their main activities – the only obligation of the participants is to basically complete a report once a month (a quarter) on the number of products put on the market
  • EKOLAMP creates a take-back system for its partners so it can take care of fulfilling the long-term obligations of the producers and importers – by paying a recycling fee the producer or importer transfer their obligations to EKOLAMP, which guarantees their fulfilment even for many years
  • EKOLAMP handles the extensive administration conected with marketing, collection and recycling of electro equipment, especially in relation to the Ministry of the Environment
  • EKOLAMP operates the compliance scheme in accordance with several fundamental principles – non-discrimination, openness, legality, credibility, transparency
  • EKOLAMP provides a 100% guarantee that the recycling fees are applied effectively solely in accordance with the company’s fundamental principles
  • Participants integrated in EKOLAMP may, by their active actions, influence the operation in the company, the collective system is open to suggestions and responds to them
  • EKOLAMP is able to offer the best service and the extensive collection network at collection yards and at many thousands of contractual partners (electrical stores, supermarkets, authorities, office buildings, etc.)
  • EKOLAMP offers financial motivation in the event of interest in further cooperation (based on a contract on the establishment of a collection point)
  • EKOLAMP cooperates in the collection and recycling of electro equipment only with proven partners who are able to meet the high legal standards and internal requirements of the collective system
  • EKOLAMP operates a modern and developed information system enabling all partners to reduce administrative and time costs; the constant improvement of the information system guarantees better and easier access of constantly more detailed data important for the management’s decision-making
  • EKOLAMP employs people with a warm and open approach who ensure the speedy settlement of the contractual partners’ requirements
  • EKOLAMP helps create the level playing field for all – searches out subjects not fulfilling their obligations (free riders) and attempts either to integrate them into the collective system or report their illegal actions to the relevant institutions; if some subjects do not fulfil their obligations, everyone else suffers who must spend more funds and exert more efforts as a result
  • EKOLAMP supports enlightenment, promotion and education resulting in increased awareness about take-back and the possibilities of legal disposal of used electro equipment
  • EKOLAMP is here for both big companies and small businesses (the principle of non-discrimination, equal approach to all)
