From computers to mobile phones, the UK throws away two million tonnes of electrical items every year, at a huge cost to the environment.
Most of the waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) discarded by households and businesses each year ends up in landfill.
It is something the Government sought to reduce with the 2007 WEEE Directive which encourages consumers and companies to reuse, recycle and recover electrical items.
The WEEE Directive aims to reduce the amount of electrical and electronic equipment being produced and to encourage everyone to reuse, recycle and recover it. The WEEE Directive also aims to improve the environmental performance of businesses that manufacture, supply, use, recycle and recover electrical and electronic equipment.
We offer a simple and safe solution for collecting, recycling and treatment of your WEEE, making sure your legislative and duty of care requirements are met in a responsible and efficient manner.
The items are taken to an Approved Authorised Treatment Facility (AATF) for disposal. This will ensure that recycling and final disposal of your items will be done in accordance with the standards set in the WEEE Regulations. All items assessed recycled and re-used wherever possible.
The Environment Agency has produced a Guidance document to help understand WEEE waste.
Advances in technology mean the UK faces an ever growing tide of excess, obsolete or end-of-life commercial and consumer electrical and electronic equipment.
Our services include: Collection & processing of all business WEEE, processing of Municipal WEEE, data wiping of computers and refurbishment of suitable WEEE.
With a range of in house services that meet or exceed environmental legislation, Amenities can manage all of your recycling and waste management needs.
