What is “WEEE”? The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment directive (WEEE) was introduced in 2006 and became a legal requirement for companies to adhere too from 4th January 2007.
The WEEE directive aims to reduce the amount of electrical and electronic equipment being produced and to encourage everyone to reuse, recycle and recover assets when the cease to become useful.

If you’re asking yourself how this could affect my organisation; according to edie.net, between April 2014 and March 2015, 3224 inspections took place by the Environment Agency, resulting in 5 serious enforcement notices.
If your item was designed to work with a plug or a battery, WEEE offer a fully compliant process to ensure its re-used or recycle recycled responsibly and ethically.
I.T. WEEE protects your business’ reputation and ensures you remain compliant with the WEEE directive. We do this by first processing your waste ethically, and then only utilising accredited downstream waste companies to recycle the component parts and such, we keep your waste from being treated unethically in Third World countries.
I.T. WEEE offer a variety of on-site storage solutions to safely store your WEEE, and when it’s time to collect, WEEE aim to do so within 72 hours of notification.
I.T WEEE can also provide financial rebates for most data bearing I.T. products, and provide bespoke collections for manufactures or downstream waste for users of components such as O2 sensors, military connectors, PCB Boards, Processor Chips and RAM modules.
