Uwe Reimer, former chairman of the NVLG, is happy with the partnership with Weee Nederland. He says that the collective agreement will be send to all companies affiliated with the NVLG. ‘Naturally are our members completely free to sign a individual agreement with Weee Nederland. Non NVLG members can also join this collective, but will pay an extra administrative fee. Companies which do this will benefit from a (financial) advantage.
Partnership with NVLG
Weee Nederland organizes the registration, collection and processing of discarded electric and electronic appliances from the professional kitchen equipment industry. We concluded an agreement with the Dutch Organization of Suppliers of Professional Kitchen Equipment (NVLG) in 2015. This way the NVLG is compliant with the law that states that producers and importers are responsible for the collection and recycling of the appliances they put on the market. All of this is done with a partner (Weee Nederland) who makes the collection as sustainable as possible. The NVLG represents 40 companies (factories, importers, project companies and service companies) which are active on the Dutch market.
