UFH offers its customers optimum disposal and recovery solutions. To keep this service on the highest possible level sustainably, we cooperate with top partners in national and international networks in the field. The invariable, ultimate goal is to make the processes as straightforward for our customers as possible and to comply with the different disposal obligations for WEEE and batteries in the different European countries.

To achieve these goals we play an active part in specialist panels and advocacy groups. One important membership is in the WEEE Forum.

WEEE Forum

In April 2002, UFH joined forces with five other systems to establish the association of European collection and recovery systems for electrical and electronic equipment, the WEEE Forum. The WEEE Forum strives to develop uniform, Europe-wide standards and to optimize the return of waste equipment.

UFH’s customers can rest assured that their waste equipment is disposed of in an exemplary manner. In addition, their participation in the system helps to further solidify the position of their companies and of Austria as responsible partners when it comes to environmental protection.
