WEEE (Waste, Electrical and Electronic Equipment)

We operate a comprehensive WEEE collection service via our Local Authority HRC's (Household Recycling Centres) throughout the UK mainland. WEEE recycled is a rapidly-growing sub-sector, with an estimated 2 million tonnes of WEEE discarded by householders and companies in the UK every year.

WEEE includes most products that require a battery or use a plug, but there are ten broad categories of WEEE currently outlined by The Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations that became law from January 1st 2014 in the UK. These include large household appliances such as refrigerators and dishwashers, small household appliances such as tasters or irons, and range to lighting equipment and IT equipment such as laptops.

It is probable that you have disposed of WEEE waste without even realising: if you are in any doubt though, our experts can help to determine how to dispose of your electrical and electronic equipment.

WEEE facts

  • Large household appliances (e.g. ovens, fridges, washing machines) currently make up over 40% of WEEE
  • An iron contains enough steel to create 13 steel cans
  • The average UK citizen will create 3.3 tonnes of WEEE in their lifetime
  • Every year, the UK disposes of over 1.2 million tonnes of electrical and electronic waste
