The Waste Electronic and Electrical Equipment (WEEE) Directive was first published by the EU in January 2003.
The main purpose of the legislation was to lower the amount of electrical goods being put into landfill. It would also encourage recycling and reuse. The legislation was approved in the UK in December 2006 and came into full force in July 2007.
Are You Affected by The New WEEE Regulations?
The WEEE regulations makes it so that retailers, manufacturers and business users are responsible for keeping electrical waste out of landfill sites or from being incinerated. This will prevent harmful gases from plastics and glues damaging the environment and causing health problems.
Our WEEE recycling service ensures that your waste equipment is recycled within the UK to recover raw materials for reuse. All categories of electrical waste, as stated in the WEEE directive, are covered within our WEEE recycling service.
