Waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) in Denmark: Flows, quantities and managementSDU Life Cycle Engineering of the University of Southern Denmark, 2016: A study with a comprehensive mapping and estimation of the flows of electrical and electronic equipment (EEE) and the corresponding waste (WEEE) in Denmark. The quantitative analysis is supplemented with a thorough diagnosis of the WEEE management system. Dynamic material flow analysis (MFA) is used to estimate the flows for the period of 1990–2025.

Import restrictions on used electric and electronic equipment Danish Environmental Protection Agency, 2016: The guidance document lists countries that have import-restrictions on import of certain types of used electric and electronical equipment. Exporters of used equipment must be aware of this.
The role of the WEEE collection and recycling system setup on environmental, economic and socio-economic performance IVL Swedish Environmental Research Institute, 2015: This study compares the legislation and how the collection systems for Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) are practically and administratively managed in Sweden, Norway and Denmark.
Regulations on the export of used electrical and electronic equipment and guidance to test of functionalityDanish Environmental Protection Agency, 2015: A guidance for exporters of used electric and electronic equipment. Contains information on the rules on shipment of used electric and electronic equipment and also product specific guidelines for test of functionality.
Danish WEEE marketDanish Environmental Protection Agency, 2015: This report contains a study of markets, actors and technologies in treatment of WEEE in Denmark With this analysis, a better understanding of the playing field for the actors involved in what is labelled “the golden triangle”: EEE producers, technology suppliers and WEEE treatment companies, is achieved.48
WEEE system setup a comparison of Sweden, Norway and Denmark IVL Swedish Environmental Research Institute, 2015: This report is a short summary of the findings from the project WEEE Setup, comparing the legislation and setup of the collection systems for Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) in Denmark, Norway and Sweden. The setup aspects that have been studied and compared are the practical implementation of legislation, the material flows and financial flows in the systems and the clearing models used between actors in the respective countries

Plastic value chains: Case: WEEE(Waste Electrical and ElectronicEquipment)Nordic Council of Ministers, 2014: This report is the primary outcome from Part II of the project “Nordic plastic value chains, Case WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment)”. The report builds on the findings of Part 1 of the project, which indicated that whilst recycling of WEEE, in general, is world-leading in the Nordic region, there is considerable room for further improvement in the recycling of plastics.
The report finds that whilst the WEEE value chain is relatively effective for WEEE as a whole, it does not perform nearly as well for plastics. Resolving the technical and economic barriers to plastics recycling will involve some additional costs – but such additional investment would bring very wide-ranging advantages. It is accompanied by an illustrated guide to good practice for WEEE plastics recycling.

Cost Calculating Model for Electronics Waste ManagementWorcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI), 2012: The focus of this project was to create a cost calculating model for the collection of WEEE at municipal container stations. This model needed to be transparent, simple, and accurate. Our intent was to create an Excel spreadsheet that could be used to easily collect relevant WEEE costs from municipal companies. We developed and tested our model by using it to calculate an estimate for the total cost of collecting WEEE in Denmark.48
How to pack used electronics prior to transportDanish Environmental Protection Agency, 2012: Leaflet for exporters of used electronic equipment from Denmark to another country. It contains information and guidance on: minimum packaging requirements and prerequisites, additional requirements, how to pack and how not to pack used electronic products to avoid being considered as electronic waste.
