Chapter Summary

After an analysis of the interstate trade implications of electronics recycling-related product and waste requirements, a similar scrutiny of the recycling schemes seems appropriate. All these issue areas are obviously partly overlapping; this chapter focuses on the characteristics of the electronics recycling schemes themselves rather than the objects that enter or exit such schemes. Cultural differences have been identified as a key variant in determining the structure and success of various recycling schemes. The basic binomical structure of the economic constitutional law reflects a division along the lines of public measures and private measures: free movement provisions regulate the former, competition law the latter. Recycling schemes typically operate on two alternative premises: they may either be voluntary arrangements, or serve to complement or fulfill some type of a normative requirement. The recycling schemes constitute one further point, where the constitutional theories of regulatory competition and harmonization meet.

Keywords: cultural differences; economic constitutional law; electronics recycling schemes; free movement provisions; private schemes; public schemes; regulatory competition; voluntary schemes
