This project deals with collection of electrical waste in the Czech Republic and was launched in January 2008.
The goal is easy recycling of electrical equipment without having to
travel to a collection yard or other special places.
As we are not indifferent to the environment, we allow our employees and businesses to
with whom we cooperate, the disposal of batteries and old electrical equipment in an environmentally friendly way.
We throw electrical waste into a collection box, which is located directly in our company. Removal of corporate waste is free of charge.
HOW TO DISCARD AN OLD DEVICE?
We will advise you ...
Consumers have an essential role to play in the new electrical or battery management system. He is the one who decides what to do with the old device. Old and unnecessary electrical equipment and batteries do not belong to municipal waste containers or to black landfills!
The consumer is informed by the symbol below that the relevant electrical equipment or batteries do not belong in the household waste. This marks any new electrical equipment or batteries. The symbol may appear directly on the device, on its packaging or in the instruction manual or in the warranty card.
Collection points ...
It is possible to dispose of electrical appliances and batteries which most people put in cellars, attics or cottages free of charge at take-back points
Manufacturers and importers must provide consumers with free so-called 'take-back' of electrical and electronic equipment or batteries, and must also finance these activities. On behalf of manufacturers, importers and sellers of electrical and electronic equipment we fulfill these obligations through the collective system REMA System a.s.
You can also use REMA collection points for your old appliance (https://www.rema.cloud/sberna-mista/)
or order a pick-up service free of charge "BE TOWY" (https://www.rema.cloud/bud-liny/)
or "re: BALIK" (https://www.rema.cloud/re-balik/).
