WEEE stands for Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment and consists of all types of electrical appliances, including large and small household appliances, IT equipment, monitors and more. WEEE waste needs to be properly managed in line with The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Regulations 2013.
Producers and distributors of electronic equipment have added responsibilities for the waste they produce and, depending on the amount of waste produced, may need to register with a Producer Compliance Scheme (PCS) or offer a take-back service for their customers.
Managing WEEE recycling and WEEE regulations can be difficult for businesses who are unfamiliar with the territory, which is why Zest Recycle is here to help.
We ensure that, no matter the type and quantity of electronic equipment produced, you are managing your waste compliantly and cost-effectively in line with the relevant regulations. We will source the most appropriate type of storage, collection and treatment method in accordance with the waste hierarchy, ensuring that your WEEE materials are able to be reused or recycled where possible and are processed through an approved authorised treatment facility (AATF).
Based in Essex, Zest Recycle works with companies throughout, London and all major cities and towns across the UK to ensure they meet WEEE regulations and find sustainable solutions for this often-valuable waste stream. For more information and to start our journey together, contact Zest Recycle today.
