A new decree to make recycling easier

50 million tonnes of electronic equipment and electronics rubbish, commonly known as DEE or D3E, will be produced each year across the entire world according to estimates from the European Union. This alarming figure demonstrates the importance of recycling these kinds of objects that are no longer needed. This is just one of the other reasons why the European Union are fixed on an objective to collect 45% starting from 2016. On Saturday 23rd of August 2014, a new decree concerning the recycling of electronic waste came into force in France. It helps shops dedicated to the sale of electronic equipment and electronics and to those who dispose of rubbish with a surface greater than 400m² to be taken away for free, and without the least obligation to purchase, all the used appliances less than 25cm. Including toasters, smartphones, tablets, kettles as well certain computers. This is just one solution to encourage consumers to separate the electronic rubbish under ideal conditions. As a result these objects will be in a state of use, where they will either remain as they are, be recycled in parts, or finally they will be reworked or reused. If the collection of large objects like fridges or washing machines are not part of this decree, it is also possible for you to separate them in an eco-responsible way, especially thanks to the tool Eco-Systèmes (in French).
