Helping you handle your Electrical and Electronic Equipment, WEEE Waste Collection

WEEE Waste Collection: Electrical eWaste Collection, Recycling and Disposal

Electrical waste can contain potentially dangerous substances such as mercury, PCBs, lead, and coolants.

Each category of Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment waste has its own rules for shredding, disassembly, and 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 is dealt with correctly.
