Description:  

EERA, the European Electronics Recyclers Association, is a non-profit organisation that represents the interests of 30 major recycling companies treating waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) in Europe. The EERA members recycle ± 2.500.000 tonnes of WEEE annually at more than 100 locations in 22 European countries. EERA members are pre-processors and end processors. EERA recyclers treat 1/3 of the total WEEE market. EERA aims for the harmonisation of international and national regulations for WEEE recycling, in order to obtain proper treatment all over Europe.

This year’s International E-Waste Day (#ewasteday), taking place on 14 October, will focus on the crucial part each of us plays, as consumers and citizens, in making circularity a reality for e-products.

According to the UN, in 2021 each person on the planet will produce on average 7.6 kg of e-waste, meaning that a massive 57.4 million tonnes will be generated worldwide. Only 17.4 per cent of this electronic waste, containing a mixture of harmful substances and precious materials, will be recorded as being properly collected, treated and recycled. Many initiatives are undertaken to tackle this growing concern, but none of them can be fully effective without the active role and correct education of consumers.

“Education and awareness are powerful tools for preventing waste and boosting separate collection and quality treatment. If you need to climb a mountain you need the right tools,  International E-Waste Day is the right kind of tool” said Virginijus Sinkevičius, European Commissioner for the Environment in his dedicated message last year. EERA endorses the International E waste day and invites you to have a closer look at the program.
