Abstract

This chapter will give an overview of WEEE Refurbishment and reuse. It begins by stating why the management of End-of-Life (EoL) electrical and electronic equipment deserves more focus than most other categories of solid waste. It describes and differentiates the reuse processes available for WEEE management, and based on this gives an industry sector specific example by describing the refurbishment of computers. It also outlines the key issues and future trends in that area.
