+ - Electronic retailers in Europe now required to take back old goods->

Submitted by Qedward
Qedward (2499046) writes "A European Union law that will require all large electronic retailers to take back old equipment came into force yesterday.

The new rules are part of a shake-up of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Directive and will gradually be implemented across the EU over the next seven years.

Waste electrical and electronic equipment, or WEEE, is one the fastest growing waste streams in the EU, but currently only one-third of electrical and electronic waste is separately collected and appropriately treated. Systematic collection and proper treatment is essential for recycling materials like gold, silver, copper and rare metals in used TVs, laptops and mobile phones."
