Sweden – The European Recycling Platform (ERP) is to cooperate with the Swedish Electronics Recycling Association ElektronikÃ¥tervinningsfÃ¶reningen (EÃ F) to provide its services in the Swedish market. The ERP will begin operating in Sweden this month and producers can immediately start activating their membership, the platform says.
ERP’s Martin Therkelsen explains hat his organisation’s international clients have long wished to include Sweden in the take-back services they are receiving from ERP in other European countries. ‘Sweden is the largest country in the Nordic region, with a long tradition of collecting and recycling electronic waste’, he points out. ‘The country has substantial industries in the electrical and electronics sector, with exports to many European countries, and it is also a major importer of electronic goods from abroad.’
