ELEKTROWIN a.s. was founded on 25th May 2005 as the operator of a collective system by the most prominent producers of large and small household appliances. The company activities are the operation and management of a collective system ensuring that producers pursuant to S. 37g (e) of Waste Act No. 185/2001 Coll., as amended, jointly comply with their obligations as set out in Part 8 of Chapter II of Waste Act No. 185/2001 Coll., as amended, for the separate collection, taking back, treatment, recovery and disposal of waste electrical and electronic
equipment. ELEKTROWIN a.s. is a non‐profit organisation founded for purposes other than business, namely the purposes of operating and managing a collective system.
Collection and treatment
Take‐back points and special containers are founded all over the Czech Republic, supplemented by mobile
collection services and, for example, collection events organised by volunteer firefighters. ELEKTROWIN is
comprised of more than 14 000 collection points. The ELEKTROWIN collective system invariably aims to maintain
and expand the network of collection points.
From the important points of fulfilling the obligations of the producer, we would like to point out the fact that
ELEKTROWIN a.s. has arranged for take‐back points in all communities and city districts having a population of
more than 2,000. ELEKTROWIN is one of the few collective systems to have such a collection network at its disposal.
ELEKTROWIN a.s. places great emphasis on companies operating technologies for the processing of electrical
waste. The purpose of management is always to select the highest available technology with the least impact on
human health and the environment.
In order to ensure the optimisation of material flows with the treatment partners ‘plants were established
collection areas which ae serviced by several electrical waste transport companies.
