WEEE waste stands for waste electrical and electronic equipment and it categorized as any form of unwanted electrical or electronic waste such as monitors, cabling or wiring, peripherals and computers etc.
Why recycle WEEE?
Currently in the UK we are producing a large amount of WEEE waste and as corona-virus continues to take its toll and lockdowns are put in place this amount is increasing. All electrical appliances can contain toxic substances in the form of heavy metals or chemicals that are considered a hazard to health. By recycling WEEE the base materials are recovered and is then diverted from landfill because when WEEE waste is dumped to landfill and left to decay, the toxins will slowly release which in turn contaminates our drinking water and earths soil.
WEEE recycling is a law in Europe and it states that everyone must dispose of their e-waste in a responsible manner. Ensuring homes and businesses recycle, reuse or recover e-waste before disposal.
Here at Recycling Management collections are scheduled at the start of every month and the process repeats. Our flat-bed vehicles and drivers are ADR registered, which means that your hazardous materials are safe to be collected by us. Please get in contact with a member of our team today to organise a collection or to be quoted.
