Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE)

Disposing of waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) can prove to be a challenge if you’re unsure of your legal obligations. We can ensure you dispose of your WEEE in the most environmentally-friendly and compliant way.

How we can help

If you sell or need to dispose of electrical or electronic equipment, you may have obligations under the WEEE Regulations. We can collect any WEEE on your behalf. Our WEEE scheme complies with the legal requirements of the WEEE Directive, as well as the legal obligations for producers of electrical and electronic equipment (EEE).

We can provide the right containers for you to dispose of your waste including:

  • 1 m3 cubed wooden crates or 1 m3 metal IBC’s for up to 250kg of small appliances e.g. desktops, monitors, keyboards, kettles, hoovers
  • Plastic cylinder containers for up to 50 8ft fluorescent tubes
  • Wooden crates for up to 1,000 fluorescent tubes
  • Full asset tracking available via our online customer portal
  • Hard drives wiped using a Blancco© system
  • Hard drives deemed unfit for reuse are destroyed

How do we create value for you?

We understand your legal requirements and can dispose of your WEEE in a transparent, efficient cost-effective way. And because we manage Household Waste Recycling Centres, we can also control WEEE volumes for any EEE you produce.

Our membership scheme is an effective and proven way to achieve high recycling rates for your electrical and electronic equipment, which is also great news for your corporate social responsibility credentials.

  • A simple, transparent pricing structure with guaranteed competitive rates
  • Our bulk purchasing capacity keeps WEEE treatment rates low
  • Flexible online system for hassle-free administration
  • A dedicated compliance team on hand to help you with all aspects of compliance
  • Direct phone access - no frustrating call centres

What happens to your waste?

We take all your items to an Approved Authorised Treatment Facility (AATF) for disposal. This guarantees that any recycling and final disposal are done in accordance with WEEE Regulations, a process that usually takes 7-10 days for completion. We also aim to recycle and reuse as much of your waste as possible.

The Waste Electronic & Electrical Equipment (WEEE) directive requires everything from fridges, IT & telecommunications equipment through to monitoring and control instruments to be diverted from landfill.

At our RoboTele facility in Bridgnorth, Shropshire, we dismantle and recycle over half a million screens every year. That's the equivalent of more than 2,500 tonnes of Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) that is turned into a resource to make new products.
