Balkans.com reported on the move by the European Commission to take Slovenia to court, due to its failure to impose EU legislation “on the recycling of electrical and electronic equipment waste”. The punishment for the lack of imposition in terms of the regulations is a daily fine of €8,408 ($9,466) “until the relevant legislation is transposed”.
In turn, the country is also in trouble for “failing to enact a single work and residence permit for migrant workers”, and the WEEE referral to the European Court of Justice is the third that the country has been given so far in 2015. The news site noted that the daily fine “seems rather low” compared to a previous fine given to the Polish government, which was €71,610 ($80,621) per day.
