ASEKOL is a compliance scheme whose mission is to collect and recycle end-of-life electrical and electronic equipment. This not-for-profit organisation was founded in 2005 by the leading representatives in the market for consumer electronics, office, telecommunication and information technology in order efficiently to dispose of worn-out and obsolete equipment in an environmentally friendly manner. In addition to take-back, ASEKOL dedicates itself to awareness projects for the general public in the Czech Republic’s individual regions.
ASEKOL’s long-term results rank it among the most important compliance schemes in Europe. In 2014, its collection network, with more than 15,000 collection points and almost 8,000 collection containers, assembled almost 17,000 tonnes of end-of-life electrical and electronic equipment.
