Waste Electrical and Electrical Equipment (WEEE) can be simply described as any item that has a plug or uses batteries. It consists largely of white goods and large household appliances, used domestically and commercially across the board.
WEEE regulations have been in place for nearly two decades. They set out requirements for the recovery, reuse, recycling and treatment of WEEE in order to reduce the negative impact on the environment.
Electrical waste releases harmful toxins into the environment and contributes to a large proportion of unnecessary landfill. Ensuring responsible disposal of WEEE products is not simply a legal obligation, but is the sustainable choice for any environmentally conscious business.

Why choose Envirovue for WEEE disposal?
