Processing electronic waste (also known as e-waste) is easier said than done. It is often unclear to consumers how and where to recycle electronics. It should also become easier to repair or reuse electronics so that fewer products end up in landfill. This Interreg Europe project, WEEEWaste: Improving policies for waste management of electrical and electronic equipment, examines how national, regional and local policies can improve this situation.

The project is a collaboration between nine partners across Europe. These partners will work together on improving policies to reduce the large amount of e-waste in Europe. This should make it easier to collect electronic equipment in a uniform way, for subsequent reuse, repair, recycling or other use. The project will also contribute to interregional cooperation between municipalities and regions. Finally, the project should also create awareness among the general public to deal responsibly with their electronic waste, and to choose reuse and repair more often. 

This Interreg project is co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).
