New Dutch WEEE collection: declaration of altlast costs of collectives
Altlast funding
The funding of costs made for altlast (= EEE pom before 2005) is based on:
- Equal reimbursement for equal performance for all collectives
- Treatment of WEEE according to WEEELABEX/CENELEC standard
- Declaration of these costs to societies based on control of invoices by ‘black box’
accountant = third party scrutiny of invoices, no transfer of commercial information
No agreement yet on:
- only producers with former key-products are entitled to altlast reimbursement (so
television, dvd producer Yes; camera and radio producer NO) instead of fair share
principle between society members.
- How to establish the ‘altlast vs neulast’ ratio: by each collective individually or by
an independent third party or fixation by producer council.
Not yet decided:
How to establish ‘equal performance’. Possible introduction of conditions related to
performance (standard 60% + 10% for high end recycling + 10% for Social
Responsibility, etc to 100% reimbursement)
New Dutch WEEE collection: clearing house between collectives
