Municipal reporting

Local authorities must register information about collection sites from where producers/collective schemes are to collect portable batteries. This information must be registered with DPA-System.

With a certain notice the local authority can establish and close down collection sites and it is possible to order and cancel collection equipment. The local authority must maintain and update all information about its collection sites.

The following information must be entered:
  • Contact information of staff responsible for administration and operation
  • Address of collection site from where portable batteries are to be collected
  • Needs of collection equipment
  • Hours of collection and special issues

Collected quantities per collection site

Producers/the collective schemes must supply information annually to DPA-System about how many kilograms of portable batteries have been collected from each collection site in the calendar year.

Special agreements

The local authority and the producer or his collective scheme can enter special agreements for a specific collection site. Producers/the collective schemes must ensure that such agreements are visible (file upload) with DPA-System for each collection site. Agreements become void if they are in conflict with the allocation scheme.

If the local authority wishes to establish a collection site from where the producer/his collective scheme must only collect batteries, it must enter an agreement to this effect with the producer. Such an agreement becomes void in connection with a new allocation period if the new producer/the new collective scheme does not wish to continue the agreement.
