EQUIPMENT AND WASTE FRACTIONS

At the municipal collection sites the ten product categories of EEE subject to producer responsibility are divided into five fractions.

The five WEEE fractions cover equipment from the following categories:

Fraction 1: Large household appliances

⇒Category

1, 6, 7

Fraction 2: Refrigeration equipment

⇒Category

1

Fraction 3: Small household appliances

⇒Category

2, 3, 4a, 5a*, 6, 7, 8, 9

Fraction 4: Screens and monitors

⇒Category

3, 4a, 7, 9

Fraction 5: Light sources

⇒Category

5b**

Fraction 6: Photo Voltaic Panels ⇒ Category 4b

* Luminaires **Light sources

Portable batteries

With the entry into force of the Battery Order on 1 January 2009 one more fraction emerged: portable batteries. Thereby six fractions are now collected. All fractions are subject to producer responsibility and will be collected and/or separated by the local authorities and picked up by producers/importers.

Collection equipment

Collection equipment for waste products at the municipal collection sites is supplied by producers/importers (in practice normally their collective schemes). Producers/importers seek to standardize at the national level equipment supplied to the local authorities.

Sorting guidelines
