If the current trend for WEEE collections continues, it will be the first time that the UK has achieved it's target since 2016.
UK on Track to Hit WEEE Target
Data published from the first three quarters of 2023 for the collection of waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) shows that the UK remains on track to hit its collection targets for 2023.
The UK collected 120,999 tonnes of WEEE in the third quarter of 2023, which was on trend with the previous two quarters where 119,000 and 118,000 tonnes were collected, respectively.
WEEE Collections to Date
So far in 2023 the UK has collected 359,289 tonnes of WEEE in the year to September against the overall target of 472,070 tonnes.
This puts the UK in a strong position to achieve the overall target, having already collected 76% of the end goal for the year.
The same period in 2022 saw the UK collections at 69% of that target, which highlights the progress that has been made in the first three quarters of this year.
If the current trend for WEEE collections continues, it will be the first time that the UK has achieved its target since 2016.
