Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Directive (WEEE Directive)
Collection, Recycling & Recovery Targets for Electrical Goods
The Directive has set collection, recycling and recovery targets for all different types of electrical goods. The RoHS Directive set restrictions upon European manufacturers as to the material content of new electronic equipment placed on the market. The WEEE Directive has undergone a number of small revisions since its inception in 2002. These include updates in 2006 and 2009.
