WEEE Waste Electrical Collections
In the UK, we throw away over a million tonnes of electrical waste each year.
This waste cannot be sent to landfill due to the content of hazardous components such as mercury, lead and cadmium just to name a few.
Due to the hazardous content, electrical waste or WEEE waste (Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment) needs to be dismantled, recycled and where possible reused.
If your item(s) uses a plug, charger or batteries, then the chances are that it can be recycled in some way shape or form. If your item carries the WEEE wheelie bin logo (a black symbol denoting a crossed out wheelie bin put in place by the EU then that also can be recycled.
There are various streams of WEEE waste, some hazardous to the environment and some not. Where possible, HazExperts will utilise our list of approved WEEE disposal and Recycling companies to recycle and re-use as much waste electrical equipment as possible, regardless of their hazardous properties.
HazExperts also specialise in the disposal and recycling of all electical streams of waste, these include but are not limited to:
