What is WEEE?

The acronym WEEE stands for Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment. WEEE is a blanket term for electrical equipment that is no longer required. It covers equipment powered via a plug or battery. It also includes components used to make electrical equipment.
The crossed out wheelie bin logo appears on any electrical or electronic equipment produced after 13th August 2005. The logo identifies the product as WEEE and so should not be out into a general waste bin.

Our recycling services cover all types of electrical equipment from many categories. You can read more about electrical waste recycling for businesses or call us on 01235 534365.

Electrical Waste Recycling

Electrical waste is the fastest growing waste stream in the UK. With new technology replacing old, equipment soon becomes redundant. The WEEE directive was introduced to govern how electrical waste is handled and recycled. Safe PC Disposal are specialists in offering a cost effective electrical waste recycling service to businesses across England.

Many other companies specialize in purely computer recycling; however, Safe PC Disposal handles almost any electrical equipment. If it uses a plug or battery we can recycle it. We collect the items from you and ensure that they are recycled legally and environmentally.
The electrical equipment we process is often end of life or damaged beyond repair so the best recycling practice is material recovery. An automated plant handles the recovery of the materials. The process involves breaking it down into small segments and then segregating the materials into large containers. A simple sounding task, but the machinery is very complex. These materials go back into the manufacturing chain to make new materials and products. The reuse of materials such as plastics and metal is favorable to using virgin materials.
