Who is Ecotrel?
Ecotrel is approved by the Ministry of the Environment, Climate and Sustainable Development, as a way to ensure that the obligations imposed on producers and importers of EEEs under the Grand-ducal regulation of 30/07/2013 are met.
Ecotrel is a non profit-making association, which was created by 43 Luxembourg producers and importers to cover their legal obligations. Ecotrel carries out its mission by managing and funding the processing of Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment, deposited at any of the collection sites put in place by State or Local government bodies. In addition, Ecotrel guarantees on behalf of its members, the future recycling of electrical and electronic equipment they currently market.
A recycling fee is added to the price of each appliance sold, to ensure financial support for Ecotrel’s activities.
Currently, over 700 companies of different sizes and from different sectors are affiliated to Ecotrel and contribute with their funding to improve the environment in which we live.
