Waste from Electronics and Electrical Equipment (WEEE) Market in Romania



The Romanian e-waste management market includes approximately 60 WEEE treatment operators. According to the FRD Center analysis, in 2012, the WEEE treatment operators registered a cumulative net turnover of over 680 million EUR and had some 2,900 employees.

The most profitable ten Romanian WEEE treatment operators, according the FRD Center analysis, were in 2012: Metalimpex Romania, Rematholding Co, Regenersis Bucharest, Alro Metal Ghencea, Total Waste Recycling, Remat Bucuresti Sud, New Company Recycling, Greenweee International, Bene International and Silnef MG. In 2012, they recorded a combined net turnover of over 420 million EUR and a cumulated net profit of approximately 7.1 million EUR.  

FRD Center monitored their activity and it resulted that their range of programs develops year by year.

In 2013, Greenweee International launched an intelligent waste collection station in Buzau, called Sigurec Prime. The station collects WEEE and packaging waste. The station was launched in partnership with the Buzau City Hall and Carrefour Romania.

Currently, there are nine organisations that have licence for taking over the legal responsibilities for the WEEE collection, reuse, recycling and recovery on the domestic market. Some examples are: RoRec Association, Ecotic Association, Environ Association, Recolamp Association or EcoPoint Association.

The Ecotic Association manages over 300 collection points. In 2012, Ecotic collected and treated over 7,400 tonnes of WEEE and developed 20 awareness and collection campaigns. Ecotic had a WEEE recycling rate in the treatment process of 84% and a recovery rate of 91% in 2012. Ecotic has over 380 affiliated producers that released on the market over 20,000 tons of EEE in 2012.

In April 2013, the RoRec Association in partnership with the Local City Hall launched a free service of WEEE collection in Sibiu.

The Recolamp Association collected and recycled 520 tonnes of lighting equipment waste in 2012, recording an increase of approximately 350% compared to the waste quantities managed in 2011. During the period 15 May - 31 July 2013, the Recolamp Association performed a national collection campaign for the lighting equipment waste. The campaign targeted companies and public institutions all over the country.
