Who is considered a WEEE distributor? | WEEE distributor obligations

Electronic recycling cycle

Are you a Distributor?

Do you have an establishment, a store, that sells Electric and Electronic Equipment (EEE)? Do you distribute Electrical and Electronic Equipment (EEE)? Do you distribute Electrical and Electronic Equipment (EEE) in Spain online?

You may not be a “PRODUCER” and, therefore, you are not in charge of applying the WEEE RATE, but your entity is also affected by RD 110/2015:

Who is a Distributor?

Any natural or legal person in the supply chain who, regardless of the sales technique used, sells EEE (Electrical and Electronic Equipment).

The fact that a company is a Distributor will not prevent it from being a Producer at the same time. A clear example of this is if the origin of the EEE sold is through import, through purchase in a country of the European Union, or if the product is manufactured under a white label exclusively for the distributing entity.

Obligations: Waste Collection

  • When users purchase a new piece of domestic EEE, distributors, regardless of the size of their sales area, are to accept the turning over of old EEE (at least, free of charge and a 1 for 1 exchange of devices which are of an equivalent type and have performed the same function as the device supplied).
  • Distributors must comply with this obligation when the WEEE is turned over by the user at the distributor's point of sale, as well as when the turns over the WEEE at home when new EEE is being supplied.
  • Large distributors with an EEE sales area of at least 400 m2 are required to collect small WEEE (no external dimensions greater than 25 cm, such as mobile phones) free of charge and without the condition that the user must buy an equivalent device.
  • In the sale of devices via the internet, producers or distributors must ensure that buyers can turn over their WEEE in the same way as in physical stores.

Collection System

SUNREUSE ASSOCIATION is responsible for the management (collection, transport and processing) of Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) and Batteries and Accumulators through  authorised and specialised waste management companies for these types of material.
SUNREUSE ASSOCIATION supplies waste containers and storage systems

When the company, distributor, storage centre or collection point have a significant amount of waste, they should contact SUNREUSE ASSOCIATION ([email protected] or 963363487).

In order to optimise logistics costs for Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) collection, a minimum amount of 400 kilos at the collection point is preferable.


NOTE: The whole waste management process costs nothing for the companies involved, as it is all financed through SCRAP SUNREUSE.

NOTE: SUNREUSE ASSOCIATION manages all categories of WEEE -7) Appendix III of ROYAL DECREE 110/2015, of 20 February, on Electrical and Electronic Equipment, as well as all kinds of Batteries and Accumulators referred to in Royal Decree 710/2015, of 24 July, amending Royal Decree 106/2008, of 1 February, on batteries and accumulators and the environmental management of applicable waste.
