Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE)

Environmentally-friendly and compliant WEEE disposal 

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. 

The WEEE directive requires everything from fridges, IT & telecommunications equipment through to monitoring and control instruments to be diverted from landfill.

 

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

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.
