Challenging Targets For WEEE Processors in 2018

It was brought up at the end of last year by many WEEE processors that short falls are expected in terms of recycling targets for this coming year. The plant operators reason that the lower than expected recycling rates in 2017 – for waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) – are largely a result of differences in the way the waste equipment is being defined and recorded by regulators and also because of illegal exports.

This however contrasts with the view held by some producer compliance schemes that the reduced amounts of new products being bought – and in turn reduced volumes of old products going as WEEE –  is the reason for the lower recycling rates so far in 2017.
