The WEEE Forum

“There is no one-size-fits-all solution to tackle illegal trading or inappropriate handling of e-waste. Voluntary standards concerning collection, handling and recycling of e-waste need to be put in place, as well as legal frameworks. Authorities must enforce legislation, consumers expect to be educated and crooks that illegally export e-waste to Africa must be punished. WorldLoop is a noteworthy example of a voluntary, private, bottom-up initiative that seeks to guarantee proper recycling while creating jobs for Africans. I strongly believe that such initiatives have great merit and deserve our full support.”
