The Dutch WEEE flows 2020

Waste of electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) is regulated by the WEEE Directive in the European Union. Article 7 of the WEEE Directive states that the minimum collection rate to be achieved annually by a member state shall be 65% of the average weight of electrical and electronic equipment (EEE) placed on the market (POM) in the three preceding years or, alternatively, 85% of WEEE generated on the
territory of a member state. In the Netherlands, WEEELABEX standard requirements are mandatory for WEEE treatment.

This report presents the EEE POM, WEEE Generated, the compliantly regulated WEEE Collection, and the WEEE Flows outside of the regulated WEEE management system in the Netherlands. The results for 2018 have been compared to the data of the methodologically equivalent Dutch WEEE Flows Study, which was conducted for reference year 2010.
