Over half of US states and Canadian provinces now have e-waste (WEEE), batteries or packaging recycling regulations with more coming into force in 2021. Electronics manufacturers face fines of up to $3 million CAD in Canada and up to $1 million USD in the USA for non-compliance.
Additionally, North American companies also have recycling compliance obligations for product sales into Europe. With over 330 recycling schemes to assess and choose from, ensuring compliance presents a large resource burden. To make matters more challenging, not all schemes are suitable for North American companies exporting products to Europe.
