The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive is a European Directive which requires producers to make arrangements for the collection and recycling of WEEE. The Directive is transposed into national law by EU Member States. Norway is not a member of the European Union and therefore has no obligation to follow the WEEE Directive. However, similar legislation is in force in this country.
As part of the regulatory system in Norway, the Ministry of Environment has approved two large collective compliance schemes (El-Retur and RENAS which between them account for 94% of WEEE collection and recycling in Norway) and a smaller compliance scheme (Eurovironment which is run by 14 producers of IT equipment)
