Gordon LT is a member of the Manufacturers and Importers Association.
The Association of Manufacturers and Importers has created an unprecedented product and packaging waste collection system in Lithuania, which is based on proper and efficient collection and management of products (oils, electronics, oil, fuel, air filters, shock absorbers, batteries, batteries, etc.) and packaging, as well as the financing of these processes.
Implementing this system has significantly reduced the cost of delivering hazardous and non-hazardous waste to customers of garage manufacturers and distributors, and enables them to properly dispose of their products and packaging and other waste.
The Association of Manufacturers and Importers, together with UAB Gordon LT and other members, reimburses the waste collection costs incurred by UAB Waste Management Center, therefore, waste holders do not charge for the waste, but UAB Waste Waste Management Center pays for the used oil, oil and other filters. Other waste is collected under particularly favorable conditions.
UAB Waste Management Center in Lithuania provides collection, transportation, storage, sorting and recycling of hazardous and non-hazardous waste. It provides waste management services to businesses, organizations, manufacturers, importers, municipalities, regional waste management centers, residents, and anyone who generates waste during their operations or at home.

- manufacturers and importers, as they fulfill their annual waste management tasks,
- waste holders, as they save money on waste management;
- waste managers, since they finance part of the cost of waste management,
- the environment and human health, as waste is collected and managed in an environmentally sound manner.

WASTE MANAGEMENT OF ELECTRICAL AND ELECTRONIC EQUIPMENT
Electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) contains substances of very high concern for the environment and human health which, if not disposed of properly, will endanger the environment and human health. When released into the environment from improperly managed WEEE, these materials can penetrate the soil, contaminate the groundwater and it is therefore important to separate WEEE from the general waste stream and to manage it safely.
End-of-life, unnecessary WEEE cannot be disposed of with municipal waste. It must be collected separately and handed over to the waste managers for the safe management of this waste. In this way, the environment is protected and natural resources are protected. Disposing of WEEE in landfills, together with hazardous waste in municipal waste, contaminates the environment and deprives them of valuable secondary raw materials that they can obtain.
The marking symbol (see below) on WEEE indicates that the collection of this product must be done separately, without mixing with municipal waste.
WEEE is a rapidly increasing waste stream in Lithuania, where a large proportion of the materials can be reused, recycled or otherwise recovered and the hazardous materials contained in this waste must be separated and treated in an environmentally sound manner.
By sorting WEEE and recycling end-of-life WEEE, companies and citizens can make a significant contribution to increasing the collection and recycling of WEEE. It is essential that unusable EEE is not disposed of before being disposed of, as it can result in contamination of the environment with substances that are hazardous to human health.
Users of WEEE must not dispose of their old WEEE together with the municipal waste, but must return it to us or take it to a fixed WEEE collection site, which is located throughout Lithuania.
When purchasing a new EEE item, consumers have the right to supply the old item of the same purpose free of charge at the point of purchase. So, by purchasing an electrical or electronic product from our company, you can bring the same type of end-of-life product to your point of sale. If you wish to dispose of an end-of-life WEEE product, please contact our customer service staff, who will advise you of the containers specifically designed for this waste. Our company cooperates with a hazardous waste management company to which we regularly transfer the collected hazardous waste. You can be assured that your waste will be safely and properly disposed of.
We invite all consumers to be indifferent, to sort their waste at the company and at home, to dispose of it properly, to protect the environment and to protect the environment!
