Why should I recycle Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) products?

Electrical waste recycling is a specialist part of the waste and recycling industry. WEEE items contain a range of materials that can be separated for recycling and used in new products.

The Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 became law in the UK on January 1, 2014, these regulations aim to reduce the amount of this waste going to landfill and improve recovery and recycling rates.

Every year an estimated 2 million tonnes of WEEE items are discarded by householders and companies in the UK. WEEE includes most products that have a plug or need a battery.*
If electrical items end up in landfill, hazardous substances could leak out and cause soil and water contamination – harming wildlife and even human health.
