This paper discusses the problems of electronic and electrical waste and outlines methods of improving recycling programs. The author explains how recycling programs can help the environment. This paper discusses current European Union resolutions for waste reduction, especially of waste products that cannot be processed in the same manner as standard household garbage. The paper contends that with over 4 kilograms of electronic waste per person annually, the UK needs to push for recycling programs immediately, and describes the programs which currently exist.
From the Paper:"In the process of discussing the waste from electronic and electric industries in Europe, we will first have to look at the basic structures as have been provided. The first of these is for the governments to fix take back requirements for the industries as also the take back specifications for them. Then they have to provide incentives for design of these items in a more efficient way for the environmental purposes. So far as the consumers are concerned they should be able to return their equipment free of charge for further disposal by the manufacturer. The first directive in this regard was issued dated 27 January 2003 and was to be implemented on 13 February 2003. The regulations for the acts by different governments were to be made during 2005. (EU Directive on Waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE))"
