About us: Your professional partner to fulfil your producer responsibility

Who we are

Deutsche Recycling is an independent, internationally operating company that is at home in the areas of the German Electrical and Electronic Equipment Act/WEEE, the German Packaging Act and the German Batteries Act. We are by your side to advise you on these topics in and for Germany, but above all also internationally/worldwide. As a full-service company, we take care of the laborious work involved in licensing/registration, quantity reports and the important appointment of an authorised representative (WEEE) for you – legally secure and cost-efficient at all times, of course.

The extensive, but unfortunately decentrally implemented, laws to ensure the legal disposal of electrical goods, packaging and batteries give laypeople hardly any chance of implementing them independently today. And there is always the threat of sanctions, sometimes serious ones, if corresponding obligations are not properly met – this also applies to ignorance. For this reason, we have made it our task to provide our customers with legally secure advice, to analyse their individual needs and to fully implement the respective resulting obligations. Our expertise with regard to the “correct” domestic and cross-border sale of electronic goods, all types of packaging and also batteries is certainly unique in its completeness. More than 1,000 customers have already decided to make use of these services.

As a provider that is independent of groups, systems, disposal companies and industries, we offer you our full service (consulting, analysis, operational implementation) internationally from a single source. Particularly in the case of old electrical appliances, for example, the current requirements, such as the appointment of an authorised representative in the target country, are important services that we provide for our customers with our many years of expertise.

For you, this means: You concentrate on marketing your products and we look for ways and solutions so that you can act in the best possible manner when it comes to your goods exports – and with maximum cost-effectiveness. What’s more, you do not need to tie up personnel resources with a difficult special topic that requires full commitment. Use Deutsche Recycling as your outsourced environmental department!
