How to join
Who can become a member of Ecotrel?
Strictly speaking, only Luxembourg-based producers, importers and foreign-based companies which sell directly to users in Luxembourg may subscribe to Ecotrel.
Other foreign companies that supply EEEs to Luxembourg importers may also subscribe to Ecotrel on behalf of their clients, if their clients commission them to do so.
Only Luxembourg companies can obtain the status of Active member, which entitles them to participate in the work of Ecotrel's General Assembly. Companies located abroad can hold the status of Acceding member.
How to become a member of Ecotrel?
Membership at Ecotrel is open to any company that meets the definition of producer as described in the law of the 09/06/2022.
Producers or importers pay an annual fixed contribution depending on the amount of recycling fees due.
Producers or importers located in Luxembourg who are members of one of the federations of Luxembourg Confederation or the Fédération des Artisans are exempted to pay the annual fixed contributions. For more information on joining one of these federations, please visit www.confederation.lu or www.fda.lu
