Every year DPA-System calculates the WEEE quantity that producers or their collective schemes are to collect from households. Allocated WEEE is picked up from the municipal collection sites/recycling centres and is sent for environmental treatment at approved facilities. The quantity is calculated on the basis of a proportionate share of quantities placed on the market. This is called the allocation scheme.
Allocation according to type of equipment.
At the municipal collection sites WEEE is divided into no less than six fractions. In addition, portable batteries have their own fraction.
DPA-System informs on an annual basis, taking effect on 1 September, the different players which collection sites and fractions have been allocated to them, including the geographical distribution.
WEEE is separated in the following fractions at the collection sites:
1. Large household appliances
2. Refrigeration equipment
3. Small household appliances
4. Screens and monitors
5. Light sources
6. Photovoltaic panels.
In addition, portable batteries are collected in a separate fraction.
