BURY TO BRUSSELS

9 DAYS – 9 STOPS

REPIC, the UK’s leading waste electrical producer compliance scheme, proudly announces its Two Decade Tour (TDT), a momentous cycling event from its headquarters in Bury, Greater Manchester to Brussels, the birthplace of the European Waste Electrical, Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive. 

This incredible 565m, nine day journey, marks the 20th anniversary of REPIC, which was established in 2004 by leading household electrical producers in the UK, with a mission to navigate the complexities of producer responsibility together and provide the producer community with a collective voice in discussions on advancing environmental regulations and practices.

The Two Decade Tour, departing on Thursday 13th June, will commemorate a remarkable milestone in the history of REPIC, with each stage of the journey serving as a tribute to the collaborative progress made by the WEEE scheme’s producer members’ journey towards a circular economy.
