WEEE stands for Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment

The WEEE is one the fastest growing waste streams in the EU. But only one-third of WEEE is separately collected and appropriately treated.

The WEEE Directive (into force since 13.08.2012) requires all large electronic retailers to take back old equipment. Systematic collection and proper treatment is essential for recycling materials like gold, silver, copper and rare metals in used TVs, laptops and mobile phones.
