For household WEEE, regarded by current regulations as equivalent to municipal waste disposed of in a sorted manner by citizens and authorized operators at Collection Centres (Centri di Raccolta – CdR) registered with the WEEE Coordination Centre, the collection is carried from the Collecting Points (Punti di Prelievo – PdP) assigned to Remedia by the WEEE Coordination Centre. At the end of 201, 6,307 PdP were active, spread over 3,001 municipal CdR served by Remedia, of which 59,7% located in North Italy, 25,3% in the South and 15% in the Centre.



Note: CdR – Collection Centres: spaces, premises and facilities for the separate collection and temporary storage of e-waste made available by public authorities or, on a voluntary basis, by private individuals. Collecting Points (PdP): individual groupings inside the Collection Centres, assigned by the WEEE Coordination Centre to the Collective Schemes on the basis of the market quotas held by them. Service punctuality: punctuality of the collection service calculated on the basis of the response times set out in the program agreement between ANCI (National Association of Italian Municipalities) and the Coordination Centre.
