Compliance schemes

Compliance schemes

Producer Responsibility legislation requires businesses to take on some of the waste management costs of their products when they reach the end of their life.

WEEE, packaging and batteries are the current focus of attention, and the waste legislation for each area shares certain characteristics. For the purposes of each set of regulations, there are producers, reprocessors, exporters and consumers. 

We can help you to find out how many of these categories your operation falls under and fulfil your obligations under the relevant EU Directive. For information on how Veolia’s Compliance Schemes can help, please click on the links below.
