Waste from Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE)

Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Regulation (WEEE) is a directive in the European Union that designates safe and responsible collection, recycling and recovery procedures for all types of electronic waste such as computers, mobile phones, kitchen appliances, etc. These products can pose environmental and health risks from exposure to lead, mercury and other heavy metals. The WEEE regulation aims to reduce these risks by providing a safe way to get rid of these materials.
