Discarded household electrical and electronic equipment can be returned to consumer product collection points free of charge. The nearest collection point can be found easily from this website: kierratys.info
From 1.5.2013 onwards the consumer can also return these equipment to the retails, when buying a new similar equipment. More information (in Finnish): www.serkierratys.fi
When a business wishes to return B2B equipment to recycling, the business should primarily contact the product's manufacturing company that provides information about the B2B product collection point and procedures for the equipment.
Elker Oy has organised a pick-up service for households that for some reason are unable to deliver the equipment to a collection point. Our pre-processing units around Finland carry out pick-ups from households an extra service. The equipment picked up are typically household appliances and computers. The service is subject to a charge but a very low one. In order to find out whether the pick up service is available in your area, you may contact the pre-processing firm nearest to you. The contact information can be found here. Elker Oy cannot guarantee the availability of the service as it is based on demand.
A retailer must accept products on a one-to-one principle in connection with sales when a similar equipment is bought. Smaller equipment (smaller than 25cm) can be returned to any retails that sell EE-equipment, when the retail is a special store selling EE-equipment with at least 200m2 of surface area, or a supermarket-type of retail selling EE-equipment with at least 1000m2 of surface area.
