LightRec - Effective and efficient collection of lamps and luminaires

Client: LightRec
Period: 2012 - 2013

LightRec is responsible for the collection and recycling of lamps and luminaires in the Netherlands. On 13 August 2012 the new EU WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronical Equipment) directive came into force, which stressed the importance for LightRec to coordinate the collection of e-waste in an effective and efficient manner.

Impact analysis
EU member states should implement the EU-directive in their national legislation ultimately February 2014. Important elements of the directive for LightRec are the newly defined e-waste categories and the displayed disposal contribution.
Partners for Innovation supports LightRec with compiling new articles and studies about e-waste and analysing their impact on the implementation of the EU-Directive.
