Nine of Europe's largest waste electric and electrical equipment (WEEE) producer compliance programs have banded together to form WEEE Europe.
The newly announced partnership will go into effect in January 2015, unifying national WEEE take-back programs. The goal is to streamline services for producers tasked with recycling used electronics under the EU's WEEE Directive.
"Our aim is to simplify processes and to offer efficient solutions to fulfil the various national WEEE recycling registration and reporting requirements at a competitive price," Christian Ludwig of WEEE Europe said in a statement.
The U.K.'s largest producer compliance program, Repic, is one of the nine founding members of WEEE Europe, which hopes to recruit additional EU member country programs.
