Collection and Logistics play an important role in the management of WEEE. Collection and logistics are involved in the lifecycle of any equipment from the moment it’s defined as a waste until it is handed over for treatment. This part of the management is of particular importance because it is responsible for both the quantity and quality of WEEE that reaches the recycling facilities.
For WEEE collection and logistics, the collector is required by law to have an appropriate collection and transport permit within the administrative boundaries of the Region where the collection and transport operations take place.
