Background Electrical and electronic equipment (EEE), and waste arising from these appliances, including waste portable batteries and accumulators (PBA), have environmental impacts throughout their life cycle. This is due to the fact that in recent years, EEE has increased in technological complexity, with new product innovations and ever-shortening product life expectancy. The amount of collected obsolete household appliances, computers, mobile phones and other electronic products increases every year. To reduce the environmental impact of waste EEE (WEEE) and waste portable batteries and accumulators (WPBA), a high level of separate collection is essential. However, WEEE and WPBA collection in Slovenia has lagged behind the collection target set by the European Union. The beneficiary has established, with the Ministry of the Environment and Spatial Planning, a system for the collection and further treatment and recovery of WEEE and WPBA. However, there is still significant potential for increasing collection rates in Slovenia and much more effort could be put into raising awareness of this potential. This project is a follow-up to the Slovenia WEEE campaign (LIFE10 INF/SI/000139). One of the main conclusions of that project was that only continuous work in a long run can achieve the best results in changing people's behaviour. Objectives The main aims of the LIFE E-WASTE GOVERNANCE project are to: Set up and expand the collection network and increase the capacity for efficient and sustainable management of WEEE and WPBA; and Establish an infrastructure for permanently raising public awareness concerning separation of WEEE/WPBA by creating green corners, street containers and a mobile caravan. The ultimate objective is a long-term change in the behaviour of consumers, especially concerning the separation of WEEE and WBA, in order to reach the collection targets defined in Directive 2012/19/ES and Directive 2006/66/ES (65% of WEEE collected by 2020). Project activities will focus on contemporary methods of collection, and the existing national network of WEEE and WBA collection and separation will be upgraded. Expected results: The general target of the project is to collect waste from 65% of the EEE and PBA products put on the market until 2020. In 2017, 6.7 kg of collected WEEE per resident (+42% in comparison to 2013), of which 1.6 kg/resident will be small domestic appliances (+ 33% in comparison to 2013); In 2020, 8.3 kg of collected WEEE per resident (+34 % in comparison to 2017), of which 2.2 kg/resident will be small domestic appliances (+37% in comparison to 2017); In 2017, 0.15 kg of collected WPBA per resident (+66% in comparison to 2013); In 2020, 0.18 kg of collected WPBA per resident (+20% in comparison to 2016); Some 500 000 households and one million residents are expected to be informed, through various awareness raising campaigns, about the proper disposal of WEEE and WPBA; Four hundred containers for collection of small WEEE and WPBA will be installed in 110 communities, to reduce the quantity of this waste in mixed municipal waste. By the end of the project, 1 000 kg of WEEE and WPBA are expected to be collected per container per year;Forty-five ‘green corners’ in shopping malls all over Slovenia will be established, with an expected 40 000 consumers bringing 1 000 tonnes/year of WEEE and WPBA to these collection points by the end of the project; A special vehicle for the collection and separation of WEEE and WPBA in rural areas of Slovenia will be established, with collections on Saturdays (March - October) in selected municipalities; and Due to the new systems for collection of WEEE and WPBA, the project expects to have reduce CO2 emission in 2020 by 1 194 345 kg, equivalent to the quantity produced by 133 residents in Slovenia on an annual level.
