The role of the WEEE collection and recycling system setup on environmental, economic and socio-economic performance

This study compares the legislation and how the collection systems for Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) are practically and administratively managed in Sweden, Norway and Denmark. The authors have studied legislation on EU and national levels, consulted scientific literature, conducted interviews with key actors within the three systems and analysed environmental impacts using LCA models. One general conclusion is that the countries, despite being geographically close, are quite different both in terms of legislation and in practical implementation and setup of the WEEE collection systems.
