Business to Consumer (B2C) EEE Producers
- B2C EEE includes household appliances and B2B EEE that can also be used in a household or non-professional environment e.g. laptops, lamps, mobile phones etc.
- Producers of B2C EEE and/or batteries or accumulators can join WEEE Ireland to help meet the obligations detailed above. Producers participating in a collective compliance scheme are exempt from certain individual requirements of the legislation.
- WEEE Ireland is a not for profit compliance scheme working on behalf of Producers to organise take back for household WEEE and waste batteries in Ireland. WEEE Ireland invoices Producer members on a monthly basis for Recycling Management Costs (RMCs) and/or applicable visible Environmental Management Costs (vEMCS) due on the EEE and/or batteries or accumulators sold into the Irish market during the previous month.
- These fees fund the recycling of WEEE and/or batteries or accumulators collected from designated civic amenity and Retailer sites nationwide. WEEE Ireland reports directly to the Department of the Environment and the Environmental Protection Agency on this activity on behalf of members.
