WEEELABEX ('WEEE label of excellence')
WEEELABEX is a project developed by the European Commission in partnership with WEEE Forum and was launched in 2013, ECOTIC being a founding member. This project aims to implement a set of standards at European level throughout the electrical waste management circuit (WEEE), from collection, storage, treatment, recycling, recovery, to the clean disposal of the resulting materials. The aim is to limit environmental pollution and increase efficiency in the recovery of materials resulting from recycling and recovery processes.
The requirements of WEEELABEX treatment standards include the implementation of organizational measures aimed at protecting the environment, monitoring the depollution of waste electrical and electronic equipment, ensuring the traceability of WEEE until the end of waste status, and improving internal processes, including staff security. .
WEEE Forum and WEEELABEX are two ways in which ECOTIC promotes values and commitment to nature and environmental protection.
