WEEE Recycling and Disposal

08455 216 666

To avoid harmful metals, such as lead, mercury and cadmium, from soaking into landfill soils and polluting water supplies, Biffa offers sustainable collection, recycling, and treatment services for all of your WEEE needs.

Since the introduction of the Waste Electronic & Electrical Equipment (WEEE) directive, office computers, kitchen appliances and any similar electrical equipment is required to be diverted from landfill.

Since the introduction of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) European Directive, UK law states that office computers, kitchen appliances and any similar pieces of electrical equipment are legally required to be diverted from landfill or incineration.

This means that any companies dealing with electrical equipment - whether they are a manufacturer, distributor, reseller or all of the above - must take their WEEE disposal seriously and ensure that they are compliant, or face strict penalties. 

That’s where we come in; Biffa offers professional and reliable WEEE recycling, disposal and collection services to take the stress out of your WEEE management. It is our duty to make it as easy as possible for you to get the WEEE removal service you need. You can always contact us to discuss your needs in detail.

What is WEEE?

Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) refers to any household or non-household electrical or electronic equipment that is broken or redundant. It’s basically anything that is powered by a battery or plug socket. WEEE can include:

  • Fridges
  • Freezers
  • Computers and monitors
  • Tills
  • Microwaves
  • TVs

Why is WEEE recycling important?

Technological advancements mean that there is a fast turnaround of electrical goods - with huge numbers being thrown into landfill.

Not only does this take up lots of space, but electronic waste disposal can result in harmful metals, such as lead, mercury and cadmium, soaking into landfill soils and polluting water supplies.

The WEEE Directive was introduced to support sustainable production and consumption by reducing the amount of electrical equipment being incinerated or going into landfill.
