The main aims of the article are to analyse the waste electrical and electronical equipment management system and present a conceptual framework for evaluating the collection system for this group of waste. Design/methodology/approach: The research methods used in the article were desk research analysis of available source data on the structure and functioning of WEEE management systems. An additional approach to the research referred to the statistical data on waste collection of the following

However, it is still a problem to create a fully efficient system for collecting this group of waste. Research limitations/implications: The main limitation in carrying out the research is the lack of current data on the quantity and quality of electrical and electronical waste which can be used for the production Practical implications: Further research will focus on using the approach presented to investigate the effectiveness of the different WEEE collection solutions and the possible improvement of these systems Originality/value: The analysis carried out indicates the need to reconstruct the WEEE management system. This approach to assessing the effectiveness of the system can be used to compare different WEEE collection options.
