WEEE Recycling Explained

WEEE Recycling Explained

Waste electrical and electronic equipment is identified as basically anything that is or was an electrical item or appliance with batteries or plug. For these items to be recycled there are strict rules, laws and permits that must be adhered to be compliant.

The WEEE regulations came into effect in 2007 and covers all EU countries, the legislation ensures that all items are recycled rather than ending in landfill where it may contain toxic components that would contaminate the ground.

All businesses that generate WEEE waste have a duty to ensure that it is legally removed and recycled by a compliant and licensed company. All companies licensed will be able to provide a waste transfer note as evidence that the material has been managed within the law. They will also be able to show you proof of their license and permit, this is important to remember because you are responsible for the company you hire to remove the waste.
