Why Is WEEE Recycling & Disposal Necessary?

In Europe, the WEEE Directive, a regulation designed to dispose of used electronic goods in an environmentally-friendly manner, took effect in August 2005, so all electronic appliance manufacturers in the region must build a collection and recycling system for end-of-life electronic products.

The ‘Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment’ Directive (WEEE Directive) became law in January 2007. Old office telephones, systems, UPS batteries, computers, monitors, printers, etc., can no longer be disposed of at landfill sites. Instead, they must be recycled by a registered waste management company. Electrical waste emits lead and other hazardous toxins, which can result in a detrimental impact on the environment, which in turn has profound consequences for wildlife and human life.

Businesses must have a certificate of proof that their electrical waste has been disposed of and recycled by a registered waste recycler.
