Red containers facilitate the hand-over of worn-out and obsolete appliances at locations closer to places of residence. Inhabitants of cities and municipalities therefore need not take their small electronic appliances all the way to a collection yard but rather can conveniently put them into a nearby container at any time. The containers are mostly placed near existing waste separation areas (glass, paper, plastic).
The stationary containers are designed for small electrical and electronic equipment (e.g. calculators, radios, small computer equipment, portable CD players and telephones).
Red containers are not suitable for: televisions, computer monitors, fluorescent lamps and energy-saving light bulbs.
There are currently more than 2,100 containers located across the Czech Republic. Where can you find your nearest container? Find it at www.cervenekontejnery.cz
