CECED and DIGITALEUROPE have launched a single central online platform in a bid to respond to recyclers’ quest for information about the presence of materials and components in electronic waste that require separate treatment.
The platform “Information for Recyclers – I4R” has been developed as a one-stop source to provide a variety of information and guidance on how to handle WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment).
In conjunction with the WEEE forum, this new platform aims to allow recyclers to access information about the presence and location of materials and components that need separate treatment.
“The added value of the I4R platform will not only benefit recyclers and the industry, but also all European citizens. It is another example of industries working together to contribute to a Circular Society, this time by supporting recycling and secondary raw material recovery. We wish to drive solutions to this problem, and the I4R platform is key to better inform managers in the recycling industry and to train workers on safety issues”
said Cecilia Bonefeld-Dahl, DIGITALEUROPE’s director general.
“By providing information at product group level, the I4R platform will help recyclers to optimise sorting where applicable”.
Northern Waste Group, Managing Director, Daniel Morgan said.
“In the UK, compliance schemes collected 522,901 tonnes of WEEE in 2017, however this was still 14% shy of the target of 621,990.
Through industry producers and recyclers working together to meet these targets, we should also be looking to educate members of our local community as well as our commercial customers to build awareness of regulations whilst contributing to a better environment”.
Northern Waste Group offer simple and safe solutions for collecting, recycling and treatment of WEEE, ensuring the legislative and duty of care requirements are met in a responsible manner.
