Sharing key to report municipal collection

Due to the legislation about producer responsibility registration and reporting of EE-Equipment must be categorised in 10 product categories whereas the waste from EE-Equipment from mulicipal collection sites is collected and sorted in 6 waste fractions.

Therefore, in connection with annual reporting of collected and treated quantities it has been necessary to set up a sharing key in view of distributing WEEE on the 10 categories. To avoid differences in reporting methods DPA-System publishes the sharing key once a year.

The sharing key is based on representative sorting trials focusing, among others, on demography, geography and seasonal fluctuations. DPA-System is in charge of these sorting analysis and subsequently calculates and publishes the key on this site.
