Consorzio Remedia is a leading Italian Collective Scheme among the most authoritative and acknowledged at national and European level for the environmentally sustainable management of all types of technological waste, especially WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) and waste deriving from batteries and accumulators. The Consortium is a direct expression of the Producers – currently they number around 3,000 – and represents, in terms of market share and organization, a point of reference in the management of technological waste. Since its inception in 2005, Remedia supports its associated Producers in integrating sustainability into their business strategies and practices.
The Consortium enjoys the support of the most important Trade Associations and Federations and is a founding member of the WEEE Coordination Centre and the National Batteries and Accumulators Coordination Centre (CDCNPA), which have the role of guarantor of the operating rules for the system management of their respective waste. As member of the WEEE FORUM and EUCOBAT – the European associations which bring together the leading not-for-profit European WEEE and Batteries and accumulators Collective Compliance Schemes – Remedia works together with European colleagues to ensure a constant update at EU level and an open discussion to define common policies and actively contribute to the development of increasingly modern and competitive management systems. A founding member of WEEE Europe, Remedia also provides assistance to international companies in dealing with the application of the regulations in force in the various European countries.
Consorzio Remedia operates through Remedia TSR, an integrated services company wholly owned by the Consortium, which coordinates the network for the management of household and non- household WEEE, as well as waste Batteries and Accumulators.
Remedia cooperates with 38 partners specialized in treatment and recycling and avails itself of the services of 264 certified hauliers for the transport of different types of waste (EWC).
The partners were chosen through a rigorous selection process, with particular focus on the traceability of waste streams, the safety of recycling processes, and the re-use and recovery of the materials.
