M.A.I. – Electronics Recycling Corp., one of the accredited companies engaged in Israeli electronic waste recycling, reported exceeding e-waste recycling goals for 2014 – targets that stood at about 15 percent of the weight of electrical equipment sold by importers making use of M.A.I.’s services. While targets set by the law for M.A.I. called for a collection of 4,700 tons of e-waste, the company said it collected 5,000 tons.
After a two-month delay, the Electronic Waste Law went into force on March 1, 2014, following approval of the law’s regulations by the Knesset Economic Affairs Committee on January 28 of that year.
