Abstract

Danish legislation aims to hold producers of waste from electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) financially responsible for the disposal of their products, but there is no method to accurately calculate their WEEE collection cost at municipal container stations. We developed a fair and simple model, consisting of a spreadsheet that totals all the WEEE costs, and estimated the annual cost for collecting WEEE in Denmark as 68,200,000 DKK.
