European Electronics Recyclers Association (EERA)

About Us

EERA is the voice of WEEE recycling in Europe being the professional association for the recycling and re-processing industry.

Our vision is for a resource efficient economy where WEEE is managed as a resource and is returned into the economy as a raw material or as equipment prepared for re-use.

A full recycling economy with market actors cooperating along the value chain, better collection processes, high quality recycling, appropriate regulatory framework, eradication of illegal practices and product design integrating a life-cycle approach is what EERA envisages.

Our mission is to achieve a level playing field for fair competition in the WEEE value chain, harmonisation of regulations, effective and efficient recycling and reprocessing with prevention of pollution, minimization of emissions and a high quality of secondary raw materials and components.
