Electronic Waste

Electronic waste is part of municipal waste generated in the municipality, but it is also the responsibility of the producer of electrical equipment and not the municipality. Electronic waste is not included among the common commodities of municipal waste (such as plastics or paper) that municipalities collect and classify in the standard way today. Therefore, the cost of collecting household electronic waste cannot be covered by the local municipal waste charge. Within the framework of extended producer responsibility, producers and importers of electrical equipment who provide this work through their producer responsibility organizations are obliged to ensure the management of handed over household electronic waste at their own expense.

Within the Marius Pedersen Group, electronic waste can be delivered free of charge in waste collection centers.
