WEEE disassembly facility opens in Hungary

Hungarian based waste management firm AKSD Kft today opened an electronic waste disassembly facility in Debrecen, northeast Hungary.
AKSD Kft on Monday inaugurated a facility capable of disassembling 2,000 tons of waste electronic equipment a year. Under the EU WEEE directive, all member states must collect at least 4 kilograms of waste electronic and electrical equipment per capita by 2009. Between 50% and 80% of this waste, depending on the type, must be recycled. The cost of collection and recycling is covered by electronics manufacturers, which usually pay another party to coordinate the activity.
