Timmermans, stop the waste!

We waste 200 tonnes of e-waste in Europe every day. In Europe, we throw away 200,000 kilograms of electronic waste every day. Each day that Frans Timmermans waits to introduce a new bill for a circular economy, our mountain of rubbish becomes larger, more land is mined for new minerals and we take another step towards disastrous climate change.

Many of our used products end up on the rubbish heap, while they could have had a bright future if re-used or recycled. The EU has continually delayed taking measures and in December Timmermans withdrew fairly good legislation.

Please take action through our partners at Friends of the Earth Netherlands. Email Frans Timmermans – the man in charge at the European Commission – and tell him what must be in the new Circular Economy package.
