In the Netherlands, the collection and treatment of waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) has long involved the concept of extended producer responsibility. As was the case in 2018, the collective collection target will not be achieved in 2019. Consequently, producers of fridges and freezers are now teaming up to improve the collection of old appliances. Weee Nederland is the management organisation that uses a general binding declaration to submit the plan to the government on behalf of producers.

The Netherlands has more than three million refrigerators older than 10 years in circulation. These old fridges and freezers consume much more energy and some even contain dangerous greenhouse gases that have long been banned. Together with producer collective Weee Nederland and the majority of the refrigeration sector, Urgenda proposes launching a campaign to ensure that next year one million old refrigerators will be recycled and exchanged for a more economical model. This will result a 0.4 Mt reduction in CO2.
