What is WEEE Waste?
WEEE stands for Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment, and no matter what industry you’re in, you’re bound to have some. The amount of waste electrical and electronic equipment (often referred to as WEEE or e-waste) created in the EU each year is rapidly increasing. It’s presently one of the most rapidly expanding waste sources. Electric and electronic equipment (EEE) that has reached the end of its useful life can be collected, treated, and recycled more effectively.
Electrical and electronic waste encompasses a wide spectrum of devices that have reached the end of their useful lives, such as computers, refrigerators, and cell phones.
This form of waste is made up of a diverse range of materials, some of which are harmful. If the abandoned gadgets are not properly managed, they might pose serious environmental and health issues. Furthermore, modern electronics include rare and expensive resources that, if properly managed, can be recycled and reused.
WEEE Recycling Wakefield
It is critical that you understand your responsibilities, whether you are selling electronic goods or a business trying to dispose of its own electronic waste. If you sell electrical goods you must provide an easy way for your clients to recycle their old or used electronic items. WEEE recycling is a highly specialised area of the waste and recycling industry, and we’re proud to say that here at Wakefield Waste are experts in it. If you are unsure whether your WEEE waste is harmful, our highly experienced staff can verify this before we arrange for collection. As electronic equipment frequently contains hazardous fluids and substances, you should not attempt to disassemble it yourself.
We are here to provide you with a helpful, dependable, and professional service tailored to your business requirements. When you are disposing of electronic equipment, and you are not sure what your responsibilities are, we can provide you with courteous guidance and an environmentally friendly solution.
There is a projected 2 million tonnes of WEEE garbage discarded in the UK every year. The waste either ends up in a landfill or is burned, both of which are harmful to the environment. WEEE garbage can contain hazardous elements, and when this occurs, the substances are emitted into the air and ground, polluting both. 2003 saw the introduction of the WEEE Directive, which is aimed at increasing recycling and re-use rates of WEEE. In 2006, the law was introduced in the United Kingdom; it only became law in the United States in January 2014. Rather than allowing WEEE to end up in landfills, the goal is to reduce it.
