Separate Collection: Producers pay for collection of WEEE from households. There is no obligation on local authorities to collect the WEEE

Compliance Schemes:None formed yet. Altough there are no electronics manufacturers in Cyprus, importers will probably have to set up a scheme as they will be classed as the producers.

Reuse:Reuse of equipment will form part of the recovery figures.

Recovery/Recycling Targets:A product tax will be charged based on the difference between target recovery rate and actual rate achieved
