New look for weee full-service: From the WEEE Guarantee System to weee full-service

As of next year, we will be adopting a new look, with new logo and a new name. Our new appearance is a consequence of the substantial expansion of our portfolio in recent years:

weee full-service emerged from the WEEE Guarantee System, with which we have been offering companies a compliance solution for adhering to the ElektroG since 2005. When the ElektroG came into force in 2005, weee full-service was the first recognised guarantee system on the market. The collective WEEE Guarantee System offers companies from all industries and of all sizes an inexpensive means of providing a guarantee as required when registering with stiftung ear. The guarantee system was jointly developed by Bitkom Servicegesellschaft and other industry players (“first movers”) together with the Zurich Insurance Group because individual solutions, such as bank guarantees, often lead to high costs.

In 2008, registration with and reporting to stiftung ear was added to the weee full-service portfolio, as well as the disposal via municipal collection facilities. When the services for batteries and packaging were added in 2016, the WEEE Guarantee System became a full-service offer for all the legal obligations associated with the ElektroG, VerpackV and BattG. Since then, we have been offering our services as part of Bitkom Servicegesellschaft not just for Germany but throughout Europe.

From manufacturers of refrigerators and coffee makers, through to suppliers of PCs and mobile phones, we offer companies from all kinds of industries a European-wide compliance solution for selling and disposing of their electrical and electronic appliances.
