The Collection and Recycling of Used Mobile Phones: Case studies of selected European Countries

Tojo, Naoko LU and Manomaivibool, Panate LU (2011) In IIIEE Reports 2011:06.
Abstract
‘This study examines the collection and recycling systems in selected countries in Europe – Finland, Germany, Sweden, Switzerland and United Kingdom – where such systems are already in place based on legislation. Based on the review of various written sources as well as interviews with stakeholders (manufacturers, producer responsibility organisations, national government officials, distributors/network providers, municipalities, second shops, refurbishers), we seek to map out the concrete operational mechanisms in the five countries and to find out the perception of actors engaged in such operations. In addition, the overall flow of the mobile phones in five countries is presented in the form of a material flow analysis (MFA).
