This work examines the economic, ecological, technological and logistical aspects of the topic "collection of electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) for the purpose of reuse" in Austria and shows the associated challenges. The one-year pilot project "Relectro", initiated and implemented by a private waste disposal company in Tyrol in 2016 to evaluate the feasibility of a permanent WEEE- Reuse collection in municipal waste management in Austria, is presented, documented and evaluated. The objectives and motivations for the collection of WEEEs for the purpose of reuse are explained, as well as the most important legal and legal framework (EU and Aus-tria) on the topic of reuse of WEEEs are presented. The relevance and results of the "Relectro" project are evaluated by comparison with similar projects carried out in other Austrian provinces: "ReVital" in Upper Austria, pilot project at the Bauhof Nenzing in Vorarlberg and the 48er-Tandler-Box-Initiative of the Municipal Department 48 (MA 48) in Vienna, as well as by evualuating relevant projects carried out in Germany and Flanders. The collected data is based on collected volumes and the resulting quotas. In the form of a final recommendation, the current situation of the collection of WEEEs with the objective of reuse in Austria is taken. Derived from the projects compared to "Relectro", the pilot project "Relectro" with an amount of 0.009 kg per capita of reuse-capable WEEEs and a reuse rate of 0.14 per cent (based on the total accumulated volume for electrical large and small electrical appliances during the projects one-year period) has achieved only small quantities despite a well-functioning logistical structure.
