In recent years there has been a significant growth in WEEE production, which actually is the most worldwide rapidly growing category of waste with a growth rate of 3-5% annually (three times higher the growth rate of the common trash) even if it will unfortunately rise by 16-20% over the next ten years . Handling this type of waste is becoming more and more difficult even in Italy: more than 850.000 tons of electrical and electronic equipment were discharged in 2008 from private households and businesses and only 14% were properly collected. In this paper a logical model will be described reproducing the WEEE distribution flows, considering several functional aspects. The model is implemented by means of specific simulation software to identify critical operational aspects.
