Financing system

The WEEE system is financed by producers. Producers pay a monthly financial contribution, which is calculated on the basis of the amount of products placed on to the market.

Collection/logistics system and treatment partners

Elkolekt developed a nationwide WEEE collection system, which made the company the largest PRO for WEEE in the country. The system covers 27 out of 81 Local Self Government Units (LSGUS) and Elkolekt cooperates with 23 Public Utility Companies (PUC). Elkolekt collects WEEE only from LSGUS thanks to their signed agreement. Upon received information from the LSGU or PUC, Elkolekt arranges with a transportation company to collect the WEEE and transport it to one of the contracted treatment facilities. Elkolekt’s system has so far more than 500 collection points for the separate collection of WEEE, which consist of:

  • 13 Collection centres,
  • 51 Warehouses,
  • 19 E-containers,
  • 54 Metal containers and
  • 457 plastic bins

Elkolekt at present is working with seven treatment facilities.
