Compositional Analysis of Kerbside Collected Small WEEE


Posted on 21 September 2010 by Anonymous

 

The Waste & Resources Action Programme (WRAP) has published a report regarding an analysis of the composition of WEEE which is collected on kerbside.

This report describes the dismantling of a large sample of small household WEEE items collected over a nine week period in Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk in the UK. It focuses on an analysis of the separated materials found during the trial, in particular the batteries and plastic components.

The report is available on-line for free.
