WEEE Directive

The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Directive (also known as the WEEE Directive) is the European Union directive on WEEE and became law in February 2003. The directive sets collection, recycling, and recovery goals for used electronic equipment.

NOTE The WEEE Directive has become a popular model for managing e-waste. As you already read, several Canadian provinces have modeled their own legislation on Europe's WEEE Directive.

The directive places the responsibility for the disposal of WEEE on the manufacturers. Manufacturers are required to establish a program for collecting WEEE. The directive states, "Users of electrical and electronic equipment from private households should have the possibility of returning WEEE at least free of charge."
