Webinar | WEEE collection: good practices to allow quality recycling and re-use

COLLECTORS is coming towards the end… it is now time to harvest – and share! – the fruits of this important labour. We have been working hard on gathering new approaches for a proper separate collection of waste, which is necessary to ensure the finest material recovery.

In order to encourage decision-makers as best as possible and to boost the replication of good practices, COLLECTORS is sharing its outcomes in a series of three webinars where each session is meant to focus on a different waste stream covered by the project.

Our consortium is happy to announce the much-anticipated second webinar! After having explored the economic aspects of paper and packaging waste collection and sorting, this time we will turn our attention to Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment.

Around 10 million tonnes of WEEE is produced every year in the EU. A meagre 35% of electrical and electronic equipment wound up in official collection and recycling systems. The other discarded electronics are either recycled under non-compliant conditions, illegally traded, exported, or simply thrown in residual waste bins. WEEE contains many high-value and critical raw materials.

Through the next webinar “WEEE collection: good practices to allow quality recycling and re-use” our experts will highlight the importance of improving the quantity and quality of collected WEEE to ensure its proper recycling from different perspectives, with an emphasis on the potential for reuse, and how to include the re-use organisation in the design of WEEE.

If you are also wondering how to improve quality recycling and re-use of WEEE, join us to learn from our experts!
