Circular WEEEP

Project overview

Design and test of policies for reducing, repairing, recovering and reusing waste from electrical, electronic equipment and plastic in Central Europe.

Discarded electrical and electronic equipment is one of the fastest-growing waste streams in Europe. Regional approaches to reducing, recovering and reusing such equipment need to be better coordinated to prevent illegal waste trafficking and disposal across borders. The Circular WEEEP project connects public authorities to identify good practices and define common waste criteria. The partners also plan to develop and test a transnational strategy on the circular management of electronics waste.
