Compared to 2020, Erion WEEE showed an increase of 1.6%.

Compared to the previous year, the data of 2021 show an improvement in Groups R2 (+2.0%), R3 (+12.2%) and R5 (+21.6%), while there was a decrease in Groups R1 (-0.9%) and R4 (-10.3%). More specifically, the increase in Group R3 is due to the introduction of the so called “TV Scrapping Bonus”, promoted by the State as a measure to support Italian families in the purchase of a new device at the time of the switchover to the new digital terrestrial TV system.
