‘Weee Nederland focuses on the core task of the collection of electronic waste and carrying out the obligations on behalf of us, the producers. Weee Nederland is pragmatic and to the point. Weee Nederland carries out the obligation like it should be carried out, and they do it with a social approach. In the sorting process they create social workprojects. We think that this is a important aspect. In addition, they really think a step further’.
What is important besides the social aspect? ‘It is important that targets are being made. Producers have to recycle 65 percent of what they put on the market. Furthermore, it is really important that the younger generation is aware of the value in their mobile phones. It is great that Weee Nederland involves the younger generation with actions at school and sporting grounds. It increases the involvement, because the youth can do something concrete for the environment and also get something in return. We applaud this.’
