GREEN ELETRON: Collective reverse or individual logistics system: which one to choose?
With the signing of the Sectoral Agreement for Reverse Logistics — which makes manufacturers, importers, traders and distributors responsible for the correct destination of the electronics that they put on the market in their post-use —, many are asking which is the best reverse logistics system: collective or individual? Both are allowed in the document and fulfill the same function: in the years 2021 to 2025, install 5,050 points in 400 cities and recycle 17% of what they put on the market in 2018.
“In addition to operationalizing reverse logistics, the first major challenge is to partner with retails to install collection points in specified communities.”
Collectively, the operation is managed by a non-profit entity, and the costs are proportionally divided among the associated companies. This applies for the 65 affiliated with Green Eletron. In an individual system, the company implements, manages and pay for all the steps defined in the Sectorial Agreement.

Whether in a collective or an individual system, it is important to think about the company’s strategies and analyze the best ways to help recycle electronics and achieve its goals.
