The 39 European producer responsibility organisations represented in the WEEE Forum collected and properly treated and reported more than 2m tonnes of waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) in the year 2009.

The umbrella organisation, which announced these figures on Monday, reported that this represented a share of almost two thirds of all recorded WEEE collection in Europe. In 2008, the WEEE Forum members collected about 1.5m tonnes of scrap equipment.
