Distributors can collect professional WEEE only if formally appointed by the Producer itself, and transport it to authorised plants indicated by the Producers.
Ministerial Decree 65/2010, sets out the simplified procedures governing the collection of waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) by distributors, installers and service centres operators.
Also in this case, as with household WEEE, there is the need to register in the Environmental Managers Register for the collection and transport of WEEE, including the keeping and compilation of the loading/unloading register and transport document.
The Grouping Place must be suitable for the storage of WEEE, i.e. “not accessible to third parties and suitably paved, in which the WEEE is protected from exposure to rainfall and wind by means of suitable covering systems, including mobile ones, and is grouped taking care to keep separate any hazardous waste, in full compliance with the provisions of article 187(1) of Legislative Decree No. 152 of 3 April 2006. It is necessary to ensure the integrity of the equipment, taking all precautions to avoid any deterioration of the same and the release of hazardous substances”.
