COLLECTORS’ partner WEEE Forum shares some of the latest news from its network:
Out of these collected quantities, 119,000 tonnes were recovered. However, Norway must collect 43,000 tonnes more to reach the new 65% target set by the EU regulation, which will require the active involvement of the population.
UK’s largest WEEE producer compliance schemes has collaborated with eight schools to write a story book called ‘Pass it on’, telling the story of “A Most Unexpected Day at the Recycling Plant”.
Despite the positive evolution of consumption patterns and of WEEE sorting, more than 30% of WEEE is still either improperly disposed of or stored in homes. It is also important to shift for different consumption systems promoting repair or deposit schemes for electronic appliances.
