The National Environment Agency (NEA) of Singapore announced that it will introduce measures to ensure that waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) is managed effectively and efficiently in the country. These measures follow several voluntary WEEE recycling initiatives and the final E-Waste Management System is to be completed by 2021.
NEA’s proposed measures will include end-of-life procedures for information and communications technology equipment, solar photovoltaic panels, batteries, lamps and other household appliances. The measures will also include responsibility requirements for producers of the covered electrical and electronic equipment. In addition, NEA has been working with producers and retailers to provide WEEE recycling bins to make recycling of WEEE more convenient for consumers.
