The relationship between local authorities and a producer compliance scheme is a critical one.
For local authorities, choosing the right scheme with the right experience delivers effective recycling services and significant environmental benefits.
ERP UK works closely with its local authority partners supporting and implementing a wide range of initiatives to increase WEEE and batteries recycling.
