Abstract

Many electrical and electronic manufacturing companies have started to look more intensively at the recycling rate and cost. The main purpose of this research is to ensure the products competitiveness by recycling cost reduction, to meet the international recycling regulation related with product recycling. The focus of this paper is evaluated the recycling /recovery rate and recycling cost of vacuum cleaner according to treatment process of general recycling center and guiding principle in EU WEEE Annex H. Additionally, we compared with competitive company's same capacity product. With these results, we tried to find a weak point and an improvement point.
