The EPA recently published a report on An Investigation into WEEE Arising and Not Arising in Ireland (EEE2WEEE) which was cofunded by ERP Ireland. This research provides insight into consumer and business behaviours towards WEEE and its disposal.
The conclusions from the research will provide an understanding of current flows and the quantities and types of WEEE not currently entering the waste stream. Scrap metal sites were surveyed and a substantiated estimate of WEEE arising was calculated. ERP welcomes the publication of this report and calls for a deeper examination into the B2B market.
