Exitcom WEEE Recycling

Legal Framework

The ratio of e-waste in all kinds of garbage is rapidly increasing in parallel with the growth of electronic goods industry in Turkey and the rest of the world. E-waste make up for one percent of solid waste in average in developed countries which is expected to double in the next five years.

Electronic wastes have two main characteristics:

-They may contain hazardous and toxic substances.
-They are valuable because of metal, glass, plastic, and other reusable materials which they contain.

Thus, e-waste can be regarded as a peril posing a risk to both human beings and the nature as well as a sector which can create new jobs and has a potential for generating high income.

Works related to e-waste mainly focus on two points throughout the world:

-Prohibition of the use of hazardous and toxic materials in newly manufactured electronic devices
-Encouraging manufacturers to take recycling into consideration while designing new products

Meanwhile, new legal and legislative arrangements are being made with regard to the collection, processing, and reuse of waste products and ensuring that hazardous waste is disposed without posing a risk to human beings, the environment, and the nature..

Considering that recycling is directly related to human health and the environment, a more rigid and detailed legal framework is being established in that field.
