Nowadays we live surrounded by technology so that leads to an increase of waste from electric and electronic equipment (WEEE). Within this context, it’s been more and more important to reuse appropriately the WEEEs in order to avoid they become damaging for the environment. The aim of the European project WEEENMODELS, funded by the financial instrument LIFE +, is to create a new model of WEEEs management; the main purposes are the implementation of the networking, in order to improve the strategic role of stakeholders, and the development of eco-business. A proper reuse of WEEEs would create new job opportunities, as already happen in other Countries where similar policies have been adopted by the governments.
