The WEEE Directive
What is the WEEE Directive?
Regulations have come into force with regards to the impact of electronic waste on the environment. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations aim to reduce the amount of this WEEE waste going to landfill and improve recovery and recycling rates. The WEEE directive aims to both reduce the amount of electrical and electronic equipment being produced and to encourage businesses to reuse, recycle and recover it.
You have obligations under the WEEE Regulations if you are a business with electrical/electronic equipment to dispose of or if you sell electrical or electronic equipment. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) legislation introduced these new responsibilities for businesses and other non-household users of electrical and electronic equipment (EEE). This includes businesses, schools, hospitals, and government agencies when they dispose of their electrical waste. These organisations need to ensure that all seperately collected WEEE is treated and recycled in the correct manner or through an appropriate WEEE recycler.
