Electronic waste - A growing threat

Electrical and electronic waste (WEEE) is one of the world's fastest growing waste streams and threatens the environment.

WEEE is one of the world's fastest growing waste streams. In the European Union, an estimated 22.2 million tonnes of WEEE were generated in 2019, equivalent to approximately 4.5 kg per inhabitant. While recycling has improved, there is still much work to be done.

Why is WEEE a problem?

WEEE often contains hazardous substances, such as mercury and lead, which can pollute the environment if not handled and disposed of properly. Recycling WEEE conserves natural resources and reduces environmental pollution.

What can we do?

Everyone can contribute to reducing the amount of WEEE and increasing recycling:

  • Buy durable products. Consider carefully whether you really need a new device. When you do buy a new device, choose a durable and long-lasting option.
  • Take care of your devices. By taking care of your devices, you can extend their lifespan.
  • Recycle your old devices. Do not throw old devices in the trash, but take them to an appropriate recycling point.
