The EARN story

The European Advanced Recycling Network was founded in 2003. Some of the leading WEEE recycling companies in Europe joined together to facilitate the collection and recycling of waste electrical equipment across Europe, in compliance with the law. Also our motivation was to assist electrical manufacturers in fulfilling the requirements of the EU Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Directive. Today, EARN Service GmbH is your qualified key provider of WEEE take-back services across Europe.
