WEEE Collection Targets for 2014

BIS has sent proposals for the basis of calculating WEEE collection targets to compliance schemes which favour targets based on previous year's figures.

The Department is leaning towards this as a basis saying that this method is most likely to fit with the changing growth or decline in tonnage collected over the preceding year.  The anticipated tonnage would therefore be around 490,000 of WEEE in 2014 representing a 3% rise on 2013's collection. 

BIS perceive that this method will most accurately account for technological changes, the trading and economic climate and other variables affecting the WEEE marketplace.
