  Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE)


The WEEE or Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Directive was adopted by the EU in 2003. It aims to reduce the amount of WEEE being disposed in landfills by promoting seperate collection, treatment and recycling. It affects any business that manufactures, brands or imports EEE as well as businesses that sell EEE or store, treat or dismantle WEEE within the EU.

Whether you are an SME with a low turnover or a multi national plc you will be faced with a problem of disposing of all of your hazardous items such as lamps, batteries and CRT’s (Cathode Ray Tubes) to name just a few. But you probably feel that is the least of your problems as you have many items of WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) that you need to find a service provider to handle.

It will affect businesses that have WEEE to dispose of and the public, who will have more opportunities to re-use, recycle and recover these products. Although consumers will still be able to take their WEEE to the local tip (Civic Amenity Site) the business or education user is faced with separate storage and recycling of anything with a plug on it or a battery in it.

You may think the difficulty in handling WEEE is due to its large size and often cumbersome weight. Those hoping to collect this waste appear to have difficulties in establishing a national coverage of post codes and don’t seem to have a full quota of Local Collection Facilities where you can take your waste to or order a collection from.
