EU unveils optimistic recommendations to boost return of used electronics

The European Commission has unveiled a fresh set of recommendations aimed at spurring the return of used and discarded mobile phones, tablets, laptops, and their chargers. With the current collection rates for these electronic devices in the EU hovering at a paltry 5%, the recommendations come as a beacon of hope. Not only will this boost the circular economy, but it will also help safeguard critical raw materials and bolster the EU’s strategic autonomy. These exciting proposals include financial incentives, improved postal services, partnerships with reuse organizations, and enhanced collection point visibility. It’s a win-win for citizens and the environment alike.
