Legal obligation

As a producer/importer of e-bikes you are legally obliged to report to the government how many e-bikes you bring onto the Dutch market. You are also obliged to collect and recycle the e-bikes at the end of their life. Wecycle is your partner to perform the legal producer responsibility at this points. We can also arrange your mandatory registration at the Nationaal (W)EEE Register. Please contact us for more information via e-mail or call +31 (0)79 7600 630. 

Tailor-made tariff

Depending on the amount of e-bikes you put on the Dutch market, Wecycle offers you a tailor-made tariff. This way you are assured of not paying too much. Please contact us for an offer that fits your business via e-mail or call +31 (0)79 7600 630. 

How can we help you?

  • Why does the AEEA regulation apply to me?
    Since 15 August 2018, e-bikes fall under the scope of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (AEEA) regulations and you have certain obligations. There is a full overview of them in the AEEA regulations, for which the government has produced a guide for readers (both in Dutch). 

  • What are my obligations?

    The most important obligations are grouped as follows:

    • Providing information to Wecycle for registration on the Nationaal (W)EEE Register.
    • Reporting imported or produced e-bikes (quantities and weights) that you put on the Dutch market, per quarter or per year.
    • Marking e-bikes with symbols in the form of a crossed-out movable waste container. Example:


    • Collecting and processing of e-bikes, according to compulsory standards.
    • Registering with and reporting to the Nationaal (W)EEE Register.
    • For companies based abroad and which sell e-bikes directly to Dutch end-users, Wecycle can act as the authorised representative in the Netherlands. 

  • What are the fees?

    Wecycle offers you a tailor-made tariff; you can meet your legal obligations without paying too much.  Please contact us for more information via e-mail or call +31 (0)79 7600 630.
