EXTENDED PRODUCER RESPONSIBILITY
GROUPE LDLC as a “producer” is responsible for the end-of-life of the products and the packaging that it sells on the French national market. To this end, it must organise or finance their recycling and elimination. As a result, GROUPE LDLC contributes financially to recycling programmes:
1- Packaging waste:
Decree n°92-377 of 1 April 1992 has given packagers the responsibility to contribute or to provide for the elimination of packaging waste resulting from the consumption of their products by households. These companies, which may be producers or importers, have the possibility to organize their own recovery system or to contribute financially to a collective system which fosters the development of the selective collection of household packaging by communities, by adhering to an eco-body approved by Public Authorities (ADELPHE, ECO-EMBALLAGES). Packaging which have been the subject of a contribution are generally marked with the green dot. To meet its obligations, GROUPE LDLC is a member of the Adelphe eco-body.
2- Waste batteries and accumulators:
Decree n°99-374 of 12 May 1999 established that producers and importers of batteries, accumulators and of devices which contain them, must organize after their use the collection, recycling and disposal of the products marketed. To fulfil this obligation, they can lodge an agreement with the Public Authorities in order to create and fund their own recycling system. They also have the possibility to join an accredited eco-body, which will take over this obligation.
Batteries and accumulators generally bear the crossed-out wheeled-bin symbol.
To meet its obligations, GROUPE LDLC is a member of the SCRELEC eco-body. In that respect, our LDLC.com points of sale in Lyon and Paris, in association with collection facilities, have made available collection and recycling trays for your used batteries and accumulators.
3- Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE)
Decree n°2005-829 of 20 July 2005 decided that the producers and importers must organise and finance the disposal of the waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) derived from their products put on the national market.
To fulfil this obligation, they can lodge an agreement with the Public Authorities in order to create and fund their own recycling system. They also have the possibility to join an accredited eco-body and, as a result, contribute financially to the recycling sector. Electrical and electronic equipment now bears this symbol .
To meet its obligations, GROUPE LDLC is a member of the ECOLOGIC eco-body.
When you buy a new electrical and electronic device, a financial participation is added, in a visible and transparent manner, to the device’s purchase price: the eco-contribution. Its amount depends on the components and the weight of the electrical and electronic device purchased.
Eco-contribution or visible contribution is making apparent on a purchase invoice the unit cost incurred for the elimination of a waste electrical and electronic equipment. The amount of the eco-contribution consists of the cost of collection and recycling. This eco-contribution is necessarily charged by producers and it is then passed on to the end user.
For reference, the exact amount of each eco-contribution is displayed on the product presentation sheets and also in your shopping cart at the time of your order. This amount, which consists of the unit cost of recycling per device, will be stated on each item falling within the electrical and electronic equipment (EEE) category.
LDLC.com takes back free of charge or has a third parties take back free of charge on its behalf the waste generated by electrical and electronic equipment which the consumer discards, within the limit of the quantity and the type of equipment sold. To this end, you can contact us : email@example.com. We inform you of:
- the obligation not discard WEEE with household waste;
- collection systems which are at your disposal;
- the potential effects on the environment and human health of the dangerous substances present in EEE.

To meet its obligations, GROUPE LDLC is a member of the ECO-FOLIO eco-body.
