CRIMINAL DUMPING POSES TEST FOR EU’S ELECTRONIC WASTE

On 21 May, EU Observer reported that EU Member States risk missing new ‘e-waste’ targets as they face challenges to comply both with existing rules and to fight criminal activities such as illegal dumping, according to a new report of the European Court of Auditors.  The report focuses on the EU’s role and actions to tackle the challenges to e-waste management.  It highlights the challenges in implementing existing e-waste treatment requirements; dealing with mismanagement of e-waste, illegal shipments and other criminal activities; and further increasing e-waste collection, recycling and reuse.
