Electrical and Electronic Equipment

Did you know Waste arising from Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) is the fastest growing waste stream in the UK.

Regulations for the control of Waste arising from Electrical & Electronic Equipment (WEEE) came into force 2nd January 2007, with full responsibility for the treatment and recycling of the waste on 1st July 2007.
WEEE items must only be treated at an approved authorised treatment facility and must undergo a de-pollution treatment. 

What do the WEEE Regulations do?
The WEEE Regulations aim to:
* Reduce waste from Electrical & Electronic 
   Equipment (EEE)
* Encourage separate collection of WEEE
* Encourage treatment, reuse, recovery, recycling
   and sound environmental disposal of EEE
* Make producers of EEE responsible for the
   environmental impact of their products
* Improve the environmental performance of all
   those involved during the lifecycle of EEE 

What equipment is included in the WEEE regulations ?
There are ten categories included in the WEEE regulations: 
1. Large household appliances
2. Small household appliances
3. IT & telecommunications equipment
4. Consumer equipment
5. Lighting equipment
6. Electrical and electronic tools
7. Toys, leisure & sports equipment
8. Monitoring & control equipment
9. Medical devices
10. Automatic dispensers

How does  the WEEE Regulations affect you?
The de-pollution and recycling of WEEE
incurrs additional costs to process.

producer of the waste. 
Commercial customer need to be aware that certain WEEE i.e. fridges are classified as hazardous waste and will require a consignment note to transport
