The paper in hand flashlights actual developments within the field of waste electrical and electronical equipment's recycling in Europe, as one of the most important IT-markets worldwide. In addition it gives an idea of some important aspects actually under discussion between, research, industry and policy-makers and shows some of the latest results of the Fraunhofer IML's applied-research activities. Starting with a short, but actual overlook over European legislation, it comes up with some of the first results of a comparative study of major European WEEE-collection-pilot-projects on the regional/community-level in Sweden, The Netherlands, Austria, The United Kingdom, Spain, France and Germany. Furthermore, the paper deals with new logistic approaches for reorganizing the electronics-recycling -chain on the example of a big German recycler, covering aspects such as "How to avoid additional traffic?" or "Recycling information management".
