The WEEE Directive aims to reduce quantities of WEEE disposed of to landfill and reduce the harmful effects caused by WEEE on health and the environment whilst conserving natural resources.
Meanwhile, the Battery Directive aims to minimise the negative impacts of batteries and accumulators on the environment and also harmonise requirements for the smooth functioning of the internal market. To achieve these objectives, the Directive introduces measures to prohibit the marketing of some batteries containing hazardous substances. It contains measures for establishing schemes aiming at high level of collection and recycling of batteries with quantified collection and recycling targets. The Directive also sets out minimum rules for producer responsibility and provisions with regard to labelling of batteries and their removability from equipment.
