Financing

Erion WEEE
Financing model

The Collective Scheme adopts different financing models based on the type of products (Household EEE, Photovoltaic modules, Professional EEE).
A fixed annual fee is also payable by all Members to cover administrative and assistance costs.

Household WEEE

As regards the management of household WEEE, in addition to the annual fee, each Producer is required to pay a fee to the Collective Scheme for each item or kg placed on the market, necessary to finance the operations of collection, transport, treatment, recovery and disposal of WEEE.

Each Producer can choose between two different ways of applying this fee:

  • visible fee (WEEE Eco-fee or ECR), expressed in EUR/unit;
  • built-in fee, expressed in EUR/kg.

In the first case (Eco-fee), the Producer applies a ‘visible fee’ on the sale price of each EEE. In this way, the presence and the amount of the contribution are explicitly indicated in the Producer’s invoices to its customers (Distributors), who in turn can highlight such contribution to the final consumer.

The Producer who uses the visible fee is required to include in its invoices an amount equal to or less than that set by the Collective Scheme for each type of EEE. The Eco-fee, in fact, as provided for by the regulations, has an exclusively environmental purpose and serves to finance the activities carried out by the Collective Scheme for the sustainable management of WEEE and cannot represent a source of income either for Producers or for Distributors.

In the second case (Built-in fee), the Producer includes in the price of the product sold to the Distributor also the contribution that he is required to pay to the Collective Scheme and consequently no item relating to the management of WEEE appears on the invoices of the Producer to its customers.

2022 Fees

The huge rise in the value of raw materials recorded in 2021 has led to a significant increase in Erion WEEE’s reserves. Consequently, in compliance with the provisions of the standard Bylaws for WEEE collective schemes, the 2022 fees have been substantially reduced.

However, this reduction only applies to Producers who are already members of Erion WEEE. Producers joining the Collective Scheme in 2022 will be subject to higher fees, which do not benefit from the use of the reserves generated in 2021.

The total amount of the fixed annual fee is set at EUR 480.00 + VAT, subdivided according to the number of collective schemes the Producer is associated with as follows:

  • Producer registered only to Erion WEEE: EUR 480.00 + VAT;
  • Producer registered to Erion WEEE + Erion Energy or Erion Professional: EUR 240.00 + VAT per collective scheme;
  • Producer registered to Erion WEEE + Erion Energy + Erion Professional: EUR 160.00 + VAT per collective scheme.

Professional WEEE

The legislation provides for a different financing model for waste deriving from professional equipment, i.e. designed for exclusively professional use. The Producer will have to bear the costs of managing WEEE on demand, i.e. when the end user requests it.

In each of these cases, the Collective Scheme will send the Member a specific quotation for executing the requested service.

Furthermore, for Producers with a volume of professional EEE placed on the market in 2021 of more than 50 tons that are not involved in the Exceed program, an additional fee of EUR 500.00 + VAT is envisaged to cover administrative and assistance costs.

Producers participating in the Exceed Program, the first voluntary generational collection and recycling system of Professional WEEE, shall pay to the Collective Scheme the fees indicated in table below in order to implement efficient networks for the collection and treatment of professional end-of-life equipment.
