Safe disposal of electrical waste

WEEE Waste

Where does WEEE waste fit into hazardous?

Often mislabelled and incorrectly stored, WEEE waste is part of the Hazardous family, but also has it’s own set of rules for governance. Firstly, WEEE stands for Waste Electrical & Electronic Equipment and is a Directive introduced into UK law in 2007. Any item that has incurred an electrical charge and is to be disposed of falls under the banner of WEEE. The Directive is designed to prevent any commercial electronic or electrical equipment making it’s way to landfill.


For clarity, some examples of WEEE waste could be:


  • Telecommunications equipment
  • IT equipment such as Computers / Laptops
  • TV / Monitors
  • Batteries
  • Lighting equipment
  • Electrical and electronic tools
