A Legal Requirement

The waste electrical and electronic equipment regulations apply to all organisations who are a supplier of electronic and electrical waste, regardless of how your products are marketed or sold.

One of your key responsibilities is to ensure that you can offer a disposal scheme to all your customers for compliant removal of their office IT equipment including toner cartridges, ink cartridges and other printing and copying consumables.

  • Details of the collection scheme
  • Information on what they can recycle
  • The importance of WEEE being separated from other waste
  • What a detrimental impact WEEE has on the environment
  • The use of the crossed out bin symbol and its importance

Once you have collected your customer’s waste, the contents have to be transported to an Approved Authorised Treatment Facility (AATF) for processing. Only a registered Producer Compliance Scheme are lawfully permitted to transport WEEE from its collection point and deliver it to an authorised recycling plant, using a licensed waste carrier.

ECS The Greener Side can easily provide you with all these services and give you the peace of mind that you are acting in a fully compliant manner in line with the WEEE Directive and current governmental regulations.
