Waste of electrical and electronic equipment – such as computers, TVs, fridges and mobile phones – is one the fastest growing waste streams in the UK and Europe.
Whether selling or disposing of electrical and electronic equipment, everyone has a responsibility to do so in accordance with the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013.
Under these regulations, which seek to reduce the amount of waste going to landfill, householders have a duty to dispose of their electrical waste properly and organisations must ensure that all separately collected WEEE is treated and recycled.
At SUEZ, we understand that appropriate collection, treatment and recycling of electronics at the end of their life is essential to improve environmental management of WEEE, to contribute to a circular economy and enhance resource efficiency.
Our collection service helps organisations to cut their landfill tax, while also reducing their carbon footprint. We provide containers for each type of waste and transport it to one of our specially-equipped locations for processing.
