Helping you handle your WEEE Waste Collection (Electronic and Electrical Waste)
The Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 became law in the UK on January 1, 2014.
They set out what must be done to deal with the two million items of waste electrical equipment we recycle and dispose of every year.
The following items now require recycling: IT and telecommunications equipment, various appliances, consumer equipment, electronic tools, toys, leisure and sports equipment, medical devices, monitoring and control instruments, automatic dispensers, display screens, photovoltaic panels, lighting equipment, gas discharge lamps and LED light sources.
WEEE Solutions: Electrical e-Waste Collection, Recycling and Disposal
Electrical waste can contain potentially dangerous substances such as mercury, PCBs, lead, and coolants.
Each category of Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment waste has its own rules for shredding, disassembly, and WEEE recycling, so dealing with e-waste can be a complicated matter. Find out more about DEFRA guidelines.
Businesses and organisations have a duty of care to the environment and the public and must ensure their WEEE waste disposal is dealt with correctly.
