What does WEEE mean?

WEEE stands for Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment, a definition that encompasses most products with a plug or need a battery.

The recycling of materials that make up these items is a growing sector. The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) estimates that households and businesses discard a combined two million tonnes of WEEE in the UK each year.

What are the different types of WEEE?

There are 10 broad categories of WEEE outlined within the current regulations. They are:

  • Large household appliances
  • Small household appliances
  • IT and telecommunications equipment
  • Consumer equipment
  • Lighting equipment
  • Electrical and electronic tools
  • Toys, leisure and sports equipment
  • Medical devices
  • Monitoring and control equipment
  • Automatic dispensers

What effects does electronic waste have on the environment?

Businesses and offices possess more electronic devices and pieces of equipment than ever. With so many hazardous materials used to manufacture those devices, diverting them to landfill would severely damage the environment. For example, if harmful metals leaked into soil or polluted nearby water supplies.

Fresh Start is an expert in WEEE collection and disposal. We design total waste management solutions that are both safe and meet the strict requirements of the law.
