Waste Electrical & Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Guidelines

What is WEEE?

WEEE is Waste Electrical or Electronic Equipment.  The European WEEE Directive 2013 requires countries to provide separate collection and environmentally friendly processing of these items.

Why recycle?

Unwanted electrical equipment is the UKs fastest growing type of waste. Many electrical items can be repaired or recycled, saving natural resources and the environment. If you do not recycle, electrical equipment will end up in landfill where hazardous substances will leak out and cause soil and water contamination – harming wildlife and also human health.
