Landbell Group company European Recycling Platform (ERP) has contributed to a recent stakeholder survey on electrical and electronic equipment (EEE).
The results of the survey will feed into a study currently being carried out by consultancy firm Ramboll on behalf of the European Commission.
The study aims to identify measures to improve the effectiveness of take-back schemes and to increase the collection of small waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE).
ERP was asked by the European Commission to share its extensive experience from operating 14 WEEE take-back schemes throughout Europe and to provide the authors of the study with data, for example, on the volumes of small WEEE generated (chargers, notebooks, tablets, mobile phones etc.).
In addition, ERP was asked to assess the reasons for relatively low collection volumes and propose appropriate policy measures to increase collection.
The planned study is entitled “Study on options for EU-wide return schemes of mobile phones, tablets and other small electrical and electronic equipment”.
Work began in June this year and the results are expected to be available in February 2021.
