Waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE)
What is WEEE?
WEEE is a European Union derived initiative which Amphenol Advanced Sensors implemented in Europe. The chief purpose of the initiative is the prevention of the improper disposal of waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE).
The directive seeks to promote the reuse and take-back of such waste so as to reduce its disposal. It also strives to improve the ecological performance of all members involved in the handling of electrical and electronic equipment. These members include those directly involved in the treatment of waste electrical and electronic equipment as well as producers, distributors, and consumers.
Finally, the WEEE directive seeks to increase the amount of equipment which is returned for proper disposal in order to achieve a recovery rate of 75% in Europe.
