ADVANTAGES OF COLLABORATING WITH ECOPILAS

What does Ecopilas offer local authorities?

Comprehensive management at no cost for the local entity through the signing of bilateral collaboration agreements between Ecopilas and EELL the financing of the management of these wastes will be assumed by the producers of batteries and therefore at no cost for the local entities.

We adapt to your needs according to the type of management of this waste by the local authority, Ecopilas has two modalities of bilateral agreement:

The local authority does not have a battery collection service: Ecopilas would take on the management of the entire process:

-Capillary collection at the points enabled by the local authority
-Supply of the necessary containers.
-Transport to intermediate storage point and final management in plant.

The local authority collects battery waste from several points (capillary collection) and gathers it at a storage point: in cases where the local authority collects battery waste (capillary collection) through authorised managers or through its own means (municipal services) and gathers these collected in a grouped manner at a storage point (clean point, ecopark, etc.), Ecopilas will assume:

-Collection grouped in the points enabled by the local entity (clean points, ecoparks, warehouses).
-Supply of drums for storage points
-Supply of the necessary containers (cardboard) for the capillary collections carried out by the local authority.
-Transport to final management plant
-Compensation to the local entity: given that the local entity performs the first stage of waste management, capillary collection, Ecopilas would compensate the EELL with an amount established in agreement so that the management of portable batteries does not involve any cost for the local entity.
