»E - odpadke ločuj in okolje varuj!«
Navedena akcija poteka v sklopu LIFE+ projekta Slovenska osveščevalna kampanija ravnanja z odpadno električno in elektronsko opremo (LIFE10 INF/SI/000139), akcije C2 Dan odprtih vrat. V navedeni akciji bomo izvedli osveščevalno zbiralne akcije po slovenskih občinah z namenom osveščanja o pomembnosti pravilnega ravnanja in oddajanja odpadne električne in elektronske opreme (E-odpadkov) in odpadnih baterij. V občinah, bomo skupaj z njihovimi izvajalci javnih lokalnih služb ravnanja z odpadki, izvedli mesečno akcijo zbiranja E-odpadkov, občanom razdelili letake, na ogled postavili E-transformerja. V sklopu vsake akcije pa bomo za sodelovanje nagradili enega občana z novim hladilnikom.

Pursuant to Directive 2002/96/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 27 January 2003 on Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment, the Republic of Slovenia adopted the Decree on Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Management in 2006 (Official Gazette of the Republic of Slovenia, No. 107/06). The Decree lays down the rules for waste electrical and electronic equipment management, with the purpose of preventing incorrect disposal or inappropriate recycling and recovery. The Decree commits all producers, acquirers and importers of this equipment to collect and provide correct treatment and recovery of waste equipment.
The LIFE programme is the EU’s funding instrument for the environment. The general objective of LIFE is to contribute to the implementation, updating and development of EU environmental policy and legislation by co-financing pilot or demonstration projects with European added value.
LIFE began in 1992 and to date there have been three complete phases of the programme. During this period, LIFE has co-financed some 3104 projects across the EU, contributing approximately €2.2 billion to the protection of the environment.
In October this year, ZEOS, ravnanje z električno in elektronsko opremo, d.o.o., issued an invitation to 'Separate out' and started to implement the all-Slovenian awareness raising Life+ Slovenia WEEE Campaign project, which is partly financed from European funds (the LIFE+ Information & Communication programme) and financially supported by the Ministry of the Environment and Spatial Planning of the Republic of Slovenia.
The aim of the project is to increase awareness of environmental issues related to production and use of electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE), luminaries and portable battery and accumulator waste (waste PBA), management of WEEE and its treatment and recovery including reuse and recycling. The project will last two years, i.e. from October 2011 to November 2013, and will address primary and secondary school students and teachers as well as households in the entire territory of Slovenia

To increase awareness of environmental issues related to the production and use of waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE), management of WEEE, its treatment and recovery (including reuse and recycling), with special focus on raising awareness of households and schoolchildren in the entire territory of Slovenia.
- To explain the need for proper treatment and management of WEEE - to ensure that the target groups understand negative environmental impacts of improper disposal and management of WEEE.
- To present and spread the message that a consumer friendly option for WEEE management is available in Slovenia - to inform and educate a target group about existing collection facilities
- To influence behaviour change of target groups.
The main objective of the “Slovenia WEEE campaign” project is to raise awareness regarding environmental issues concerning the manufacture and use of electrical and electronic equipment, handling of WEEE and their treatment and recovery (including reuse and recycling), with a special emphasis on households and school children in Slovenia.
DIRECTIVE 2002/96/EC OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND OF THE COUNCIL of 27 January 2003 on Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE), also known as the WEEE Directive, represents a new challenge for EU Member States and traders. The primary purpose of this environmental policy is to preserve, protect and improve the quality of the environment, protect human health and utilise natural resources prudently and rationally. The directive is based on the principle that environmental damage should be rectified at source and that the polluter, i.e. producer, distributor or importer of equipment, should pay. The Directive imposes an obligation of responsibility upon all producers of electrical and electronic equipment, ranging from large and small household appliances, computers, TV sets, printers, electrical tools, medical devices and beverage dispensers.
Objectives of separate collection, recovery, reuse and recycling
The Member States should provide for the attainment of two basic objectives:
- to achieve a rate of separate collection of at least four kilograms on average per inhabitant per year of WEEE from private households
- to achieve required levels of recovery, reuse and recycling of the components for WEEE separately collected by the liable parties
The contents of the Directive:
- WEEE Directive - OJ L 37 - 13th February 2003
- WEEE Directive - amended, OJ L 345 - 31st December 2003

EU examples and campaigns
Voluntary collective WEEE management systems
Even before the implementation of the WEEE Directive, collective WEEE management systems were already operating in some European countries, and some of them began operations or are being established at an accelerated pace since the implementation of the WEEE Directive.
The WEEE Forum is an association of voluntary collective systems in Europe. It was established in April 2002, with the purpose of mutual information of collective systems and good practice exchange.
CECED (European Committee of Domestic Equipment Manufacturers), with its head office in Brussels, is an association of manufacturers of large and small household appliances and national trade associations in Europe. The main objective of CECED is to represent and defend European Industry interests in the dialogue with EU institutions.
