WEEE recycling processes

We take care of the entire WEEE recycling process from collecting WEEE to exporting recycled metals and plastic, providing total waste management solutions for large businesses and convenient sites for tradesmen and members of the public.

We recycle the majority of WEEE we receive at our industry-leading Recycling Park and HMP Academies. WEEE may be assessed and tested for reuse then sold, or manually dismantled before it is processed through our fragmentiser.

The regulations around WEEE recycling

The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations (2013) came into law in 2014, superseding the 2006 WEEE regulations.

The aim of this WEEE legislation is to reduce the tonnage of waste going to landfill by setting targets for the collection, recovery and recycling of WEEE. Producers of EEE are made accountable to meet these targets, by taking responsibility for their products when they reach the end of their working life. All businesses who place EEE on the UK market for the first time, either by importing, manufacturing, rebranding or distance selling are considered producers under the WEEE directive.

The WEEE regulations for business dictate that producers must:

Register with a WEEE Producer Compliance Scheme (PCS), like Recycling Lives Compliance Services, or the Environment Agency directly

Minimise the waste arising from their EEE and promote reuse

Declare the tonnage of EEE they put onto the UK market

Facilitate the collection and appropriate disposal of end-of-life waste

Ensure that all EEE products are correctly labelled
