Recycling rate of e-waste

The indicator is calculated by multiplying the 'collection rate' as set out in the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive with the 'reuse and recycling rate' set out in the WEEE Directive, where:
• The 'collection rate' equals the volumes collected of WEEE in the reference year divided by the average quantity of electrical and electronic equipment (EEE) put on the market in the previous three years (both expressed in mass unit).
• The 'reuse and recycling rate' is calculated by dividing the weight of the WEEE that enters the recycling/preparing for re-use facility by the weight of all separately collected WEEE (both in mass unit) in accordance with Article 11(2) of the WEEE Directive 2012/19/EU, considering that the total amount of collected WEEE is sent to treatment/recycling facilities.
The indicator is expressed in percent (%) as both terms are measured in the same unit.
