[greenyes] Norway tops 90% recycling of EE scrap


According to an article by the Norwegian Pollution Control Authority, in
2004, the country collected over 90% of its electrical and electronic scrap
for recycling, the highest rate of any country in the world.
Collection rates vary by type of product. The highest return was for
domestic appliances, data equipment and lighting equipment, as well as
professional machines and installations. Toys and telecommunications
equipment have particularly low return percentages.
