Public consultation | WEEE Directive revision - European recycling industries' input to the call for evidence

09 November 2022

EuRIC strongly supports the European Commission’s initiative to evaluate the Directive on Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) whose goal is to protect the environment and human health, contribute to sustainable production and consumption as well as ensure that resources are used efficiently in an EU circular economy.

In terms of sustainability, although EuRIC believes that a significant step forward has been made since the Directive’s entry into force in 2012, European recyclers believe that there is room for improvement in order to realise the objectives of the EU Green Deal and the new Circular Economy Action Plan (CEAP).
