The amount and separate collection of WEEE

Finnish Environment Institute SYKE monitors the development of the amounts and source-separation rates of waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) 2016–2023.

The total amounts of WEEE in the Circwaste key regions are estimated based on the national statistics on producer responsibility of WEEE (Pirkanmaa Centre for Economic Development, Transport and the Environment) and mixed municipal solid waste (Statistics Finland).

The share of WEEE in the mixed municipal solid waste is estimated based on regional picking analyses on mixed municipal solid waste. In the absence of regional picking analyses, a national estimate on the share is used (Suomen kiertovoima ry KIVO, Koostumustietopankki).

The national amounts of WEEE and municipal solid waste are divided to the regions based on population. The source-separation rate is estimated by dividing the amount of WEEE separately collected by the total amount of WEEE in each region.
