Non-profit and commercial collection; notification

The authority may impose conditions and obligations or impose a time limit on the collection.Commercial collection shall be prohibited if:there are concerns about the reliability of the person making the notification or the person responsible for the collection, orthe collection is contrary to overriding public interests,i.e. it prevents the public waste management authority from fulfilling its waste management obligations on economically balanced terms or significantly impairs its planning security and organisational responsibility. The latter is to be assumed ifwaste is collected for which the public waste management authority carries out household or other high-quality separate collection and recovery of waste,the stability of charges is jeopardised, orthe non-discriminatory and transparent award of waste management services in competition is considerably impeded or undermined. As a matter of principle, WEEE may only be collected or taken back by the public waste management authorities, the producer or distributor and their agents.
