Adding value to remanufacturing: Conceptualising a reverse logistics system for the collection of WEEE

Adding value to remanufacturing: Conceptualising a reverse logistics system for the collection of WEEE – a case study outlining the collaborative project between Menzies Distribution Ltd and Heriot-Watt University.

This project brought together two of the UK’s leading logistics organisations; Menzies Distribution Ltd (Menzies) and the Logistics Research Centre at Heriot-Watt University to evaluate whether Menzies’ existing logistics capability and capacity can be leveraged to create a sustainable reverse logistics system for the collection of small household Waste Electronic and Electrical Equipment (WEEE) items for remanufacturing/refurbishing purposes.
