Since 2007, all go!! WEEE produced by businesses within the United Kingdom can no longer be simply landfilled. All non household users of electrical and electronic equipment must check to see if they want to either register as a producer of WEEE or are exempt.

WEEE refers to a wide range of electronic and electrical things, both big and small. Listing them all here would be too lengthy, but typical items include household appliances, INFORMATION technology equipment, lighting, tools, toys, sports equipment, medical devices and monitoring equipment.

They need to have the capacity to return their old one, whether the client buys a new fridge.

Businesses can return WEEE free of charge to whoever produced the gear if it was purchased new after 13th August 2005. If you're replacing WEEE bought before this date with new EEE of the exact exact same type, you can return the WEEE for free to the new equipment is made by whoever.

The purpose of the directive is primarily twofold. Firstly, it promotes reduction and recycling of waste. A large percentage of said equipment can simply be recycled, such as wiring, alloys, plastics & circuit boards. Secondly, there are dangerous substances in lots of the products. This really is illegal under both UK and EU law and of course tremendously unethical too.

Whenever someone gathers your WEEE you should complete either a waste transfer note or possibly a hazardous waste consignment note. Which notice you fill in depends on whether the WEEE is risky or not.

The European Waste Catalogue (EWC) categorizes everything we throw away, and can assist you to determine if the waste is dangerous or not. What sort of business you are also determines the way you will need to check out the laws.

Always keep the item registration number when buying EEE, since this will assist you contact the maker when it needs replacement.
