Battery take-back in Denmark

Denmark’s Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) for batteries, as outlined in the ” Statutory Order on batteries and accumulators and waste batteries and accumulators No. 1453 “, is a regulatory framework aimed at managing the environmental impact of batteries throughout their lifecycle. Under this system, producers are responsible for the collection, treatment, and recycling of batteries once they become waste.

Reasons to Prioritize Environmental Compliance:

  • Improving the collection and recycling rates of electronic waste
  • Minimizing the volume of waste directed to landfills
  • Encouraging the sustainable use of resources

Who are the stakeholders?

Scope of batteries included

The EPR framework in Denmark covers a broad range of batteries to ensure comprehensive environmental management. The types of batteries included in the scope are:

This comprehensive scope ensures that all major categories of batteries are managed responsibly from production to disposal, promoting a circular economy and reducing environmental harm.

Battery Tax for Portable Batteries in Denmark

In addition to Denmark’s Battery EPR requirements, producers who sell portable batteries must register with the Danish Tax and Customs Administration (SKAT) to pay a specific tax on these items. This tax is separate from the environmental fees paid to compliance schemes and is crucial for responsible battery waste management. RLG provides comprehensive support for registration and tax reporting to help ensure compliance.
