The Recupel contribution is the amount that you pay upon purchasing a new electric/electronic appliance. We use the revenues from these contributions to coordinate and organise the collection, sorting, processing and recycling of WEEE in Belgium and Luxembourg.
For the household appliances, an ‘all-in' contribution applies. You pay this contribution when you buy a new appliance, and the charge appears separately on the invoice or the purchase receipt as 'Recupel contribution'. This contribution covers the costs for collection and processing as well as for Recupel’s operations and communication (reporting, monitoring companies, …).
