In January 2003 the EU published the Waste Electronic and Electrical Equipment (WEEE) Directive.


The aim of the new legislation is to reduce the amount of electrical waste going to landfill, and to encourage recycling and reuse. In December 2006 UK WEEE Legislation was approved by Parliament and it came into full force in July 2007.

ARE YOU AFFECTED BY THE NEW WEEE REGULATIONS?


The new WEEE Regulations makes business users, manufacturers and retailers of electrical and electronics equipment responsible for making sure their goods do not end up in landfill or incineration, where the toxic chemicals, metals and associated solders, glues and plastics can cause environmental and health problems..

There are 10 WEEE Categories as follows: -

 

  1. Large household appliances
  2. Small household appliances
  3. IT and telecommunications equipment
  4. Consumer equipment
  5. Lighting equipment
  6. Electrical and electronic tools (excepting large-scale stationary industrial tools)
  7. Toys, leisure and sports equipment
  8. Medical devices (excepting implanted and infected products)
  9. Monitoring and control instruments
  10. Automatic dispensers

The WEEE Man is made from the amount of waste electrical and electronic products that an average UK citizen – YOU – will throw away in YOUR lifetime, if YOU carry on disposing of products at the current rate. Currently most of these products go straight into landfill. From January 2006 manufactures & retailers will be responsible for recycling this waste under new EU legislation called the WEEE (Waste Electrical & Electronic Equipment) Directive.
